This is video #16 from the “Beginner to Chess Master” playlist. It’s the King and Queen versus King and Pawn type endgame. How difficult can that really be? The queen is so much more powerful than that little pawn, how could it ever stand a chance? You might be surprised to know that there are several positions where winning is simply not a possibility with best play. We need to know how to win the won positions, and draw the drawn positions without any guesswork. One wrong slip, and a winning position can fall into drawn territory in this must know endgame, one that is no less important than King and Queen vs King. After this endgame is discussed, a pop quiz of 10 questions related to this topic is presented. How well will you digest the content, and how will you score come quiz time? Even an experienced player may stumble!
I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
