Who knows how to force the mate from any position or can send a video for it? I would be very grateful

For those who want to improve in endgames here is the unmissable endgames book:

"100 endgames that every chess player should know"

according to databases (which allow you to tally up things like how many KQP vs KRP occurred among the x games in the database. I think the ability to confidently play a winning KQ vs KR position may only be worth a fraction of a rating point for as often as they come up (See Gelfand Svidler) Mueller and another guy who write an endgame book that was very John Nunn-ish . Also Google Former US Champion Walter Browne v Thompson endgame table bases (they were different then) Look up "Philidors' position; Knowing this endgame perfectly is very time and consuming and worth little but what you might learn in the process may be worth more. For researchers there are 7 man endgame tables which require membership but 6-man ETBs are freely accessible (www.k4it.de)

Actually, the best defense in this ending (White can still win, but it is extremely difficult) is called the third rank defense. The rook is placed on a rank or file two from the edge. The king is on the two ranks/files closer to the edge of which the rook is two ranks/files away from, with the attacking king on the other side. The point is that the rook is cutting the attacking king off from the only rank/file from which it can initiate mate threats.

Yeah, I believe white needs to get his queen behind the king and rook and trap them.
