11. Activity of the King

This test covers all king movements prior to or after the castling. Idea of this is to test whether it's appropriate to bring the king forward for the battle, or to move the king to a more defensive square. 

I accepted king moves which were made in late middle game to early endgame. 
especially moves where king can be used as

* an active defender, 
* an aggressive attacker with respect to assisting pawns, 
* a space restrictor, 
* a blockader,

Recommended Test time: 

Short time control:                                      10 seconds each move. 
Intermediate Time Control:                      1 minute each move 
Long Time Control:                                       7 minutes each move.
