More King Walking

While Blitz games are a mixed bag at best they are (like boxing) at least fun to watch. The Norway tournament had a blitz event at the start, and this resulted in at least one talked about game (Carlsen v Caruana 1-0). However I did spot a couple of other interesting games including the following one. Agdestein went the pawn hack against Svidler but ended up in a position that reminds me of a Nimzowitsch game (I forget which one). Then Agdestein looked for salvation with the exchange of queens but instead had his king dragged up to board, and into mate!
