to the first game: WTF HE CAN DO THAT?!?!
to the second game: that was cool, you should dig up the famous king march Kasparov had. I believe it was against Kramnik, but I'm not positively sure about that.

I ran across this one a little while back and thought it was unique. Not only do you

developed, he marches his king out.

excellent game (the book was co-written by 2 GMs and one IM. they take turns annotating the various games, and at the back of the book, they have all chosen the one game that they think was the best.

Originally posted by Big Orange CountryI agree, it's a great book, with some great games. It starts out back around 1850 and you can really see how the game has progressed since then.
that's the one!
thanks for the post.
Edit: This is definitally the game I was thinking of. however I was mistaken in that it does not keep with the thread (in which the marching king is victorious). Nonetheless, easily the greatest king hunt of all time. Multiple brilliancies by Kasparov in this one, and noone can say that Topalov played poorl ...[text shortened]... g like that. I'm in the dorm, and the book is back at my house, so I am not entirely sure).
