    I thought that if I flushed him out into the open with Bxf7 I'd have some decent mating chances. Turns out he could take a stroll, care free. Who knew?

    This game shows the importance of activating the king.

    24. Bxf7+ wins quickly.

    26. Nxe7+ too. (Kxe7 Qxh7+ and black loses the b7-bishop too)

    you should see this one with Karpov - Zaitsev. This was the craziest way to castle the king I've ever seen!
