A Draw with the Bongcloud

The Bongcloud Attack is needle-sharp, so to speak. Forget going to the endgame, with the Bongcloud you are lucky to get out of the opening; most of the time, 2. Ke2 is one of the last moves of the game. Yet in my quest for knowledge on the path of the Bongcloud , I've had two very interesting endgame situations already. The first is the promised draw, where I probably should have given a go at getting a Bongcloud, but to me a draw with this opening was just as coveted.

 

Second, I had a game with fellow Bongcloud afficionado Conquistador. Here he takes the white pieces to victory after a silly blunder late in the game.

    Bongcloud, love it.

     

    I'm going to play it in a live game to see what results I can get from it. Im rather hoping raymond keene does an opening series on i, as the blongcloud may cause more confusion for me than my oppenant. 

    I will let you know the results
