I love a good Kinghunt. Its like a pack of wild Hyenas trying to hunt down their prey.  It's not often you get the chance for a King hunt but I am happy that I recently did.  It was an online game with Benztoyz where I temporarily sacked the exchange for play against the enemy king:







Even the Grandmasters get in on a little king hunt action:
