Queen vs. Four Pawns Reposted in v3

  • #1

    White to move.

  • #2

    Is white winning this?  I would guess yes but would appreciate opinions from others.  Thanks.

  • #3

    This is a variation from a tournament game I played the other night.  On my move before the diagram I played 49. a8=Q and black actually played 49...h5 instead of 49...g5 (pawn came from g7) on his move before the diagram which allowed 50. Qg2+ followed by 51. Qxg7 making it much easier for me.  It appears it would have been much tougher had black tried 49...g5 (diagram).

    This is an easily won position of course. Simply getting the white king in front of the pawns will leave black with nothing to play for.


  • #5

    I think black might need an extra pawn to win.

    Thanks for the advice, but I need help with queen vs. four pawn endgames more than anything else right now.
