Sep-14-08  gambitfan: A winning endgame : ♕ + ♙ // ♕

In such endgames the stronger side can only win if the Queen manages to double check the adverse King + the adverse Queen...

My question : how is it possible for the stronger side to force such a position ?

Is it possible for the weaker side to avoid this fatal double check ?

I would like to get some criteria...

Last but one move :
Black just played 51... ♕c4+

White played 52 ♔a5 and then 52... ♕d5+ (double check)

Let's see if the White King might ahave escaped this double check...

52 ♔b6 ♕d4+ (double check also)
52 ♔b7 ♕d5+ (double check !)
52 ♔a7 ♕d4+ (double check!)

My question : what was the strategy to obtain such a position ?

Was it forced ?

Could it have been avoided ?

Oct-22-09  dan49442: the strategy for black was to move his queen closer to both kings in order to fork and force the trade.

  Stonehenge: I guess White wouldn't take the draw with 45.Rc6 and Rxd6.
