Jeremy: Thanks for the comment and for making the nice pre-set. As for the game, I'm glad to see you appear intrigued. In this game there is actually motivation to move one's King toward the enemy camp. Such movement can earn you an extra Bishop, Knight, and a Rook... of course, there is some risk involved. And, if you decide to play it safe, yet your opponent takes the risk and is successful, then you can find yourself be behind in material. So, there is sort of a struggle in this one between King safety and added material.
