very strange position board #863769
I just wanna say that I find this a very weird game.
Jacobson is attacking with his king :)
I don't want any suggestion for further moves. But does everyone find this so strange?

That is very common.
It is a so called "King's Wing attack".
Can go both ways.
A win or a terrible loss.....

Yes, I agree that he is crazy. Let us know how it goes.

that position is called... "a king on the Market..."...of course. i do not mean, however, to assert that he has a bad position...strange however...

Well... That's a semi-endgame position. If you want to see something truly amazing, I refer you to Short - Timman, Tilburg 1991 (move 32).

Squijum That's amazing! I did a Google for that game and it was really fascinating.
Reminds me of a casual game I played on Yahoo,where I had just a KQ versus my opponent's KQRB and he drove my King towards his side of the board,in fact just one square from his King which was still placidly sitting behind his pawns. Thankfully his last move was not a check,which enabled me to move my Queen into that 'gap'. And then it was over. Wouldn't have happened if he was a strong player,but it's my favourite chess 'memory'.

Short was a little disappointed that Timman didn't continue the game with 34... Kh7, after which the intention was 35. Qxg6+! Kh8 36. Qh6+ Kg8 37. Kf6! Short said: "I was really going for that. On h6 the king's a little safe, somehow it's too easy."

i think the idea in this gameknot game is simple.. one player is down a minor piece.. so he is going to try to have his king substitute for the minor piece to give himself a chance
