Maximum checking distance

11/6/2010 – The position opposite comes from the recent game Efimenko - Moen, Plovdiv 2010, where white had reached a won rook ending. The black king is confined to edge of the board whilst his counterpart is free to play actively. However, as is so often the case in chess, precision is of great importance here. What would you suggest for white? Learn about maximum checking distance, liquidation into won pawn endings and about the winning zone for the king in queen against pawn endings in Grandmaster Dr. Karsten Müller’s analysis for ChessBase Magazine Online.
