The Fearsome Fascination of Kingwalks!Marching your king across the board at times right through or into enemy lines may be both exhilarating and terrifying. Nothing may be quite as satisfying as a majestic kingwalk across the board which brings you glorious victory. And nothing as tragicomic as a needless journey ending in epic failure.Chessplayers are fascinated by kingwalks, perhaps because of their inherent contradiction and even implausibility. The most important and vulnerable chess piece does something other than trying to remain safe.Topics include: Kingwalks to Prepare an Attack; Kingwalks in Anticipation of an Endgame; Kingwalks to Defend Key Points; Kingwalks to Attack Key Points or Pieces; Mating Attacks; Escaping to Safety Across the Board; Escaping to Safety Up the Board; Kingwalks in the Opening; Kingwalks in the Endgame; Double Kingwalks; and Unsuccessful Kingwalks.For sheer entertainment as well as instructive value, the kingwalk is transcendent!Executing a successful kingwalk has the power to make a chessplayer happy and the same can be said about playing over the many beautiful examples in this book. Enjoy! From the Foreword by Hans Ree. Softback, 288 pages. Dimensions 150 x 226 x 13mm, 376g
