Default Status of Q+NP vs. Q?


NALIMOV TABLEBASE

What is the status of Q+NP vs. Q?

Black to move -- what result?

White: Qe6, Kg6, Pg7

Black: Qf4, Kb2

8/6P1/4Q1K1/8/5q2/8/1k6/8 b - - 0 76

Fine writes: “It is essential in this ending to have Black’s king all
the way on the other side of the board since otherwise it will merely
get in the way and prevent perpetual check.” Diagram 560 in BASIC
CHESS ENDINGS.

600 ENDINGS by Portisch & Sarkovy: “For a long time it was thought a
knight’s pawn, like a rook’s pawn, could not be realized, until the
famous ending in Botvinnik-Minev, Amsterdam 1954, changed the
assessment.” The key is for White to control d4.
