Queen vs Pawn

Queen vs Pawn

Course 42 episodes
(1 hour 38 min)
Creators GM Avetik Grigoryan

Most Queens vs Pawn endgames arise out of pawn races.

One side promotes their pawn to a Queen. The other is left with an advanced pawn 1 or 2 squares away from promotion.

In that case:

  • How do you decide if the Queen can stop the pawn in time or not? 
  • If it can, what’s the technique to do so? 

This course will show you the exact technique you need to know to figure out how to stop the pawn...

 

You’ll also see some exceptions and how the Queen fares against advanced and connected pawns. 

Below are some positions taken from the course:
