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...
