And in case you're wondering, both White knights got in a fork on c7.
A lighthearted game, and I don't feel like getting any more technical than that at the moment.

|Apr-07-11|| ||sofouuk: not a very impressive opening display by black against an offbeat sideline - next time just prevent the fork 9...Kd8=. 13 ... Bf5 better than ... b5 but either way it looks a lot easier to play white|
|Apr-07-11|| ||Garech: Great game - brilliant endgame play from Nua too, to top it off.|

|Apr-07-11|| ||kevin86: I like the "knight fever". No doubt this was a joke game.|
|Apr-07-11|| ||redorc19: a joke game? really? Well, April Seventh!!!|
|Apr-07-11|| ||scormus: I felt W was totally in control throughout the game, and great engame play, even I can see that. Did black miss a rick after 4. Qxd4?|
And the icing on the cake 53 h3 1-0. I never saw a quieter move to cause the other player to resign. I love it.
|Apr-07-11|| ||whitesupremacist: 7 Qxb5 is the mother of all blunders... After 8 Nxde by black, the white knight can fork the black King and rook and is a major piece up towards the middle game. White can also castle at will, while black King is in a bad way and his Bishop stays penned in like a helpless calf. Did Juan Zhao think it was April Fool's Day when he was plauing that game? Is he really 2500+??|
|Apr-07-11|| ||goodevans: Almost exactly a third of white's moves were N moves and a third R moves, leaving only a third of his moves to be covered by other pieces.|
|Apr-07-11|| ||rodchuck: <phony> Brilliant pun - too bad I didn't see "it" as a painful word...|
|Apr-07-11|| ||WhiteRook48: this is bad play by Zhao Jun|

How about this similar move in a much more complex position?

I think Black's intention was to counter an offbeat sideline with an offbeat sideline, but it backfired when White demonstrated why offbeat sidelines of offbeat sidelines are offbeat.

You do your Aryan brothers little credit with this analysis. The move in question trades queens, nothing more and nothing less. As pointed out below black would have been equal on 9...Kd8.
