1. f3 h5 2. Kf2 h4 3. Qe1 h3 4. Kg3 (4. Ke3? hxg2 5. Sh3 Rh4 6. Qxh4 gxf1=R 7. ??) hxg2 5. Nh3 gxf1=R 6. Kg2 Rh4 7. Qxh4 Rxc1 8. Rf1 Rxb1 9. Kg1 Rxf1+ 10. Rxf1

False castling and Frolkin combined with the paradoxical move 4. Kg3! seemingly cutting off wQ's route to h4.

1. e3 d6 2. Ke2 Kd7 3. Kf3 Kc6 4. Bb5+ Kxb5 5. c4+ Kxc4 6. a4 Bg4+ 7. Kxg4 f5+ 8. Kxf5 Kd3 9. Qc2+ Kxc2 10. Ke6 Kd1 11. Kf7 Qe8+ 12. Kxe8 Ke1

Possibly the fastest possible K/K platzwechsel.
