Toying with the King! Are you Brave Enough?

This game illustrates the point that sometimes, pieces can be shed one after another when there is chances that the King will fight out alone in the open without any artillery support.

In chess, a naked king will surely meet his doom soon. You won't need to calculate great numbers of variations. Just go at it, but be sure of course that you have a preponderance of pieces near your enemy King. Otherwise, please go home packing and crying.

1. e4 e6 I frequently employed this e6 move now because of the books that I have read about this charming defense. It is called French Defense. It will give you a Kiss of Death, not French Kiss. 

2. Nc3 d5 3. exd5 exd5 4. d4 Nf6 5. Nf3 Be76. Bf4 O-O 7. Bd3 Bg4 8. h3 Bh5 A sad necessity if White does not want to destroy its Kingside pawns early in the game. Though, it would not have mattered since His King is still in the center. It can transfer to the Queenside by castling there, and then, slugfest! 

9. Be2 c6 10. O-O Nbd7 11. Nh2 Bxe212. Nxe2 Re8 13. Ng3 Nf8 14. Qd3 Bd6 15. Bg5 h616. Bh4 Could be an error. Though, the resulting position if I would have to corral the Bishop would be so bleak for my King. But I am fierceless, anyway! :) 

16... g5 Let's go!

17. Nf5 Bxh2+ First, let us remove possible attacking pieces! 

18. Kxh2 gxh4 Chop! 

19. Nxh6+ Kg7 20. Nf5+Kh8 21. Nxh4 Ng4+ Why not? The h4-knight is en prise, unless, the King will prance into the Open and met his death. :D Confidence! 

22. Kg3 Oh! My dear friend is very brave. Braver done me. :D 

22... Qd6+ The start of the move that should divorce the White King from his family. I think, that's lovely, even though, it might not be the best move. The mere thought of being able to force the King forward is full of hopeful winning chances. 

23. Kxg4 Re4+ 24. Kh5 Of course not 24. Kf3 as 24... Qf4# is mate!

24... Rxh4+ Another lovely idea. Chess Players are always happy to find such idea. Even though, it could be wrong! But the removal of another good defender of the King can give dividend later. No need to calculate variations! We are just having fun here! :) 

25. Kxh4 Ng6+ You see, that's the trick. The White Queen must kill herself or Her King will be killed first. Take your pick. 

26. Qxg6 Other moves like 26. Kh5 is met by Nf4+ , and a Royal fork!  While 26. Kg5 Qf4+ 27. Kh5 or similar would be killed by 27... Qh4# , an epaulette mate. Or whatever, as long as it is a mate! 

26... Qxg6 27. f4 Qxc2 28. Rg1Rg8 That keeps the King imprison in the corner side of the Board. 

29. g4 Qf2+ 30. Rg3 Qxf4 That's it. The King can not escape mate in a couple number of moves. Well, I hope. White Resigns. 0-1 

How do you like the game? Well, I like it so much.
