Using the King - a warning!

Article text
The last thing I want to say (for now) about using your king, is DON’T DO THIS.

After all I've said about using the king to attack, I'm now warning you not to rush in to situations like this. You may think you’re getting your king into a great position, attacking two black warriors at once or so it seems.

You’ll get a nasty shock when black moves h1 – h6 and instantly wins the game!

Believe me, I have lost games this way. You feel a bit stupid...
