The King leads the Charge!

What happens in a game when your opponent exchanges off queens as early as move 6?  Do you settle for a long and boring game which we all know is eventually going to be a draw?  I say no!  I say the queen's attacking duties fall to the other member of the royal family.
In a game for University B against Nailsea this week, watch as white cowardly exchanges off queens and then retreats his king to the far recesses of the board, while black's king steps up and charges forward!
The more discerning and handsome reader may have noted that the game still ended in a draw.  Well, yes.  And so did the match; 2-2.
Well, the king can't do everything.
