E-book: Queen Endgames Q vs 2P


When one pawn is on bishop file, drawing chances are increased because after losing a pawn, drawn ending with queen against c(f) -pawn can arise. Winning area is almost completely analogous to central pawns positions. With king on Kb2, Kb3 or Kf3 win is again trivial, and with Kc4, Kd4 or Ke4 immediately decides 1.Kd3. The only difference is that with Kf4 White cannot win!
