The King's Pawn openings, playing 1.e4 on the first move, has alway been most popular among chess players. Bobby Fischer called 1.e4 "Best by test!", and certainly the resulting games are full of interest. Wide open attacking games, old and still evolving gambits and even closed positional maneuvering. Here we have a complete selection of chess e-books for download, focused on the King's Pawn.   When playing a pawn ending, remember that it’s still chess, so you win if you trap the king.

The queen and pawn versus queen endgame is a chess endgame in which both sides have a queen and one side has a pawn, which they are trying to promote. It is very complicated and difficult to play. Cross-checks are often used as a device to win the game by forcing the exchange of queens. Well, the basic rule of (single) pawn endings is that if the side with the pawn manages to get their king on one of the key squares (and the pawn can't be taken on the next move), it's a win. I'm able to get first to one of the key squares. It doesn't matter that you're the first one to get there, that's probably where your mistake lies.
