Post The Lazy, Lonely King! -Flint vs Approximation, Maroczy Bind
I'm posting this up more for the novelty value than anything else, although I think it's a pretty nice game as well. Everything seemed to just run very smoothly. But the king is left completely alone and doesn't move for the whole game! TC was 15 0.



Really like this one :D

LOL- I think the king should get some exercise- even castling took too much effort apparently!

Normally the attacker advances pawns so as to open the position, not the defender. This reverse principle in action kinda came a cropper. Though I suspect, being the defender had never crossed blacks mind.

:D

It seems that way. Black played a very bad strategy in this game. It's not a model game by any means, but it does have a fun aesthetic :) I just wish the a and b pawns were off the board as well, so the king would have the whole first three ranks to himself :)

Agree. It seems that Black didn't care a lot about opening either. I personally think that 8. ... h5 only lost a tempo for Black.

After 15.f4 White is in apsolute control of the center and Black's pieces are completely chained and helpless. You definetely took your chance. Your opponent should resign this game. Well done! :)
