  1. The "easiest" way to win the queen king endgame is to put the queen in knight opposition in relation to the opponents king. So after you promote, your next move should be queen b2. After that you hunt down the king until it's on the side of the board with knight opposition. Then you move your queen away on the other rank so if the white king is on the h-file, you place your queen on the g-file. You want to force the king into a corner so after a bunch of knight oppositions you will end up on lets say white king h1 and you want to place your queen on g4. That way the white king can only move between h1 and h2 and you bring your king down to f2 and next move will be queen g2 check mate :)If you force the king to a8 your queen should rest on d7 and then bring the king to c6, queen b7 check mate.[Variant "From Position"][FEN "8/8/8/8/8/1k1K4/8/2q5 b – – 0 1"]1… Qb2 2.

  2. Aaaargh …Forky says WHAT?! NOOOO!! U know it but …use your Q+K to drive the lone K to an edge/side & simply coordinate Q+K for the mate while AVOIDING Stalemate…practice this to do it in your sleep & quickly & then all good 😉 To be positive, it was not a loss, but let's get those wins & no blunders..please! Analyse this & learn & move on & up!
