A Queen and Pawn endgame from my daily practice on ChessTempo.com. These are endgames which gave me trouble during the practice. I broke them down into steps to help remember them and post them to share with my fellow chess players. The solution is the shortest as verified by the endgame database. Comments are my own.
For those of you who have looked at my practice games in this blog, I have switched back to ChessMaster 10 for an opponent. Scid vs. PC's Phalanx has been simple to win against, even after increasing its ELO from 1300 to 1700. I hope this is indicative that I've passed a learning threshold.
