Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Queen Endgames - Part 3

Opening: :

Player(s): Granda Zuniga, Yermolinsky, Giri, Khamrakulov, Euwe, Alekhine, Ju, Gunina, Ni Hua, Sutovsky, Tukmakov, Ivanov, Dvoirys

Many players, from club level to 2600+ Grandmasters have irrational fear of queen endgames. No, they won't run away from the board as soon as such an ending appears, but they don't trust queen endgames as a path to convert advantage into a victory. Too many checks, too much uncertainty, and, yes, a higher probability of a game-changing blunder. The purpose of this series is to restore faith in queen endgames.
Video 3. What about an extra pawn on the same side of the board? As seen from Video Three there are winning chances, significantly greater than in rook endgames with a similar pawn structure. A lot depends on availability of infiltration path for the attacking king. Pawns pushed too far greatly complicate the defender's task, as in Giri-Khamrakulov, Ni Hua-Sutovsky, and Tukmakov-I.Ivanov.
