20.Qb3 is much better than Qa4
Essential Endgame Technique:
I believe that endgame technique is one of the defining characteristics in each skill braket within chess, being able to use advantages considered minor at lower levels of play such as a pawn or 2 in material and cleverly using domination and common tactics such as triangualtion and zugzwang to out play your opponent is the essential key to acending above the 1400 rating "barrier" that I struggled with for months.
Game 1(Using the 1 pawn advantage in a K+5 vs K+4): Wolf_Rayet vs Bigdukesix 1-0
Game 2(Playing for a draw may win you the game): Wolf_Rayet vs. TimBitHauler 1-0
[Includes Draw technique with K+N+P vs. K+R]
[Includes Winning Technique for K+Q vs. K+R]
