Chess Endgame : Queen vs. Rook Part - 2 Winning Method

Previous : Queen vs. Rook Part - 1

In part 1, we already discussed fortress in this part we will discuss winning method for stronger side.

Philidor studied this position in 1977 and therefore called 'Philidor Position' where stronger side (here white) wins with either side to move.

White to Move

Black to Move

With black to move it is comparatively easy for stronger side. Why ? because you have already same position which we get above on move no. 3.
