What role-playing games don't feature experience?
The extra points in GURPS are not experience points. There is nothing you can do in the game that will get you any experience points. The arbitrary points given by the game master, are merely to allow characters to grow. You could have a game master that never gives out extra points. It would be akin to a game master telling everyone to advance to the next level regardless of what they did.
How to deal with players who like to use the local authorities to solve their problems
I disagree that the player is playing their character 'smart'. He is playing 'easy' and not in the least creatively. He might as well have a few hundred knights to follow him around, that would be a lot smarter than a small group of adventurers going into the dungeon. I would prefer to see him devise a trap or a clever ruse that splits the enemy into smaller groups that the party can handle better. Also, I think the character is ignoring his abilities and those of his party. Unless of course the encounters are too hard for the group to handle.
