Queen vs Rook endgame study

  • 1. e4 e5 2. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 3. Bf1c4 h6 4. Nb1c3 Ng8f6 5. O-O Bf8c5
    The first piano I ever played was actually back in 7th grade, music class... the teacher told me off for playing the 'h' key too early
    • 6. d3 a6 7. a3 b5 8. Bc4a2 d6 9. h3 Bc8b7 10. b4 Bc5b6 11. Bc1d2 Nc6e7 12. Qd1e2 Ne7g6 13. g3
      ? Stopping potential tricky Knight advances but this weakens the King position
      • 13... Qd8d7 14. Kg1h2 O-O-O
        ? The most ambitious side to castle, but Bc8 was probably better, adding pressure to h3
        • 15. Ba2b3 Nf6h7 16. a4 Nh7g5 17. Bd2xg5
          ? White thinks he's winning a pawn, but this does not work, as..
          • 17... hxg5
            A file is opened up opposite the King, and don't forget the Queen is also watching h3
            • 18. Nf3xg5 Rh8xh3
              Now Kg2 to get out of harms way
              • 19. Ng5xh3
                ? This simply loses to deadly pins
                • 19... Rd8h8 20. g4
                  Forced
                  • 20... Ng6f4 21. Qe2f3
                    Also forced
                    • 21... Rh8xh3 22. Qf3xh3 Nf4xh3 23. Kh2xh3 Bb6d4
                      And now without a dark-squared Bishop, White loses an exchange, and the position can be simplified in Black's favour
