The King Wants to Join the Party

All chess players learn early on to tuck their king away safely in the corner behind a phalanx of pawns, especially while the fireworks are going on elsewhere on the board. But sometimes the king wants to join the fun!

In ChessCafe's newest column, GM Efstratios Grivas presents quite a number of positions, all in the thick of the middlegame, in which the king plays a crucial part in the fighting. He ventures out among the heavy artillery and, at least in most of the games Grivas writes about, lives to tell about it.

You can read this fascinating column here.



  • This is great. I just begun to play chess and didnĀ“t move with the king anywhere. Lot of useful tips you gave me. Thanks!
