Navara’s king march
There is a remarkable game still going on as these words are being written at the Biel Chess Festival.
From what looks close enough to a normal position, AMAZING things are about to happen!
Navara has just played his 20th move, 20.Kg1-f2 as otherwise …Bxe3 comes with check and c5 falls. Over the next few moves the white king will simply go
And ask black to do his best. The king literally walks up the f-file and ends on f8!
Here we are after 28.Kf7-f8
White aside from one capture and one rook move has only moved his king straight up the f-file (indicated by the drunken yellow arrow).
Creativity still exists!
