    Wow, I wondered how this one worked. It's very challenging.

    At 9:00 instead of Qe5+ Ka7 Qb7+ Ka8 Qg8+ couldn't you do the easier Qd8+ Ka7 Qd4+ Ka8 Qa4+? There's a lot less to calculate.

    At 10:30, you play 1. Qd8+ and say "this one is simple," and then show 2. Qd4+ and 3. Qe5+.  But you could've just went 1. Qe5 right away and skipped the two unnecessary checks.  Qe5 forks the back rank and the a1 square, which lets the queen touch the important b1 square next move.  So "this one is simple" is actually the harder way.

    Proving that however powerful the engine, or opponent, if you know how to do it, it can ALWAYS be forced Wink

    KQ v KR is a very challenging endgame to win, and has even given GMs trouble in the past (try playing against a tablebase computer, it is hard!).

    I had the endgame occur once for me OTB, and could not convert it due to being low on time (<2 minutes) and lacking the correct technique. It is worthwhile to learn for any player as it may occur in one of your games someday!
