Fascinating example illustrating the value of the King as a fighting piece - and another beautiful job as always GM Bojkov - thank you!
what a journey for a king!!! its like the three kings that went to visit jesus lol.
thats a crazy game
What a game !
Even more importantly, what an instructive(mostly tactical-discovered attacks hovers over the minds of both players for some time,'bringing everyone to the party'(Seirawan)-R-d8 check .. and maybe some postional themes as well but I was too entranced to notice) game selction to teach us!!

In this sequel video we find an amazing game where both kings are completely exposed. In the game Gashimov-Grischuk, from the World Team Championships in 2010 we see the brave black king journey across the board, eventually finding the safest place to hide: Next to the white king! He then helps to checkmate the enemy from the b1-square... This game is not a "golden ticket" to start breaking basic chess principles, but it certainly is fun to view exceptions to our golden rules...
