It would be nice to have some good examples of that.


Queen and Rook pawn v Queen is usually a draw with correct play, is it not? But what is correct play?

I find the five and six man tables at the shredder site a useful resource. Just set up a position and it will tell you whether win or draw. That may help make more sense of the DVD.

Hello: Watching a Mueller DVD and he can be very frustrating sometimes. Anyone recommend a resource that could explain this endgame (preferably an online resource).

I understand one defense is for the K to go to the opposite corner of the queening square. So it can avoid the attacker's counterchecks that result in an exchange of queens. I guess I mean it forces the attacker's K and Q to go back so they can try and engineer those counterchecks. It would be nice to have some good examples of that. Thanks!
