    Proof that being one move away from check is never enough, if the opposition can keep YOU in check the whole time.

    Game 1444689

    (yes, also proof that I kept leaving my pieces to die lonely deaths)

    Anyone else got some longer examples of king herding?

    I believe that this victory (already posted in my best games thread) is a good example of king herding in that you @herd@ the king to his demise...tell me what you think amigos!
