Kings Indian Delayed Exchange

White's lesser known line vs the Kings Indian Defence resulted in a quick win. In the game Sunil Dhopade Swapnil vs Yang-Fan Zhou, an inaccuracy on move 9 allowed White to pick off a pawn in exchange for the two bishops. Black's defensive task would be difficult, but a natural recapture by Black overlooked a winning tactic for White.
