Chess Kit Training Tactics Harrying the king

If it is often true that a King may become exposed to attack even after castling, how much more strongly does this apply when the King has been deprived of the castling privilege, or has not had a chance to make use of it. Once the King is in a seriously exposed position, the attacker may take all sorts of risks, and sacrifice material with abandon. The likelihood of achieving checkmate is a blank check for all sorts of risk-taking.
