The King Takes a Walk
Compiled by addiction to chess
--*--

This is a game collection dedicated to the king walks and King hunts that facinate us in the game of chess. These are the criteria: 1)The King walk must take place in the middlegame not in the endgame as this is basic and the king is in not much danger. 2)A king hunt must have his opponent's king take a stroll unwillingly.


This game inspired me to make this collection.
