    If promoted to a rook then the king alsways have a move which is Kh3 but if that was queen the queen now covers the h3 square because of its diagonal movement so after checking simultaneous time the opponent king will take the queen and now white wont have any moves and its a draw but if rook then tberes Kh3 and the queen can not do that anymore cuz its not stalemate

    My greatest move till date is to finally take that free queen which my opponent has blundered for the third time

    Mind absolutely blown. How did you arrived at that? Was it like a lightning strike of inspiration or did you work that out after a long deliberation?

    First time hearing about a mad queen. I'm sure if I was playing a blitz game I'd have instinctively promoted to a queen even without auto queen

    in this case yes u can, but then its two rooks 1 knight against a queen, a inferior version of this

    @HERO PLAYZZZdon't worry, you didn't sound rude, (at least, not to me) I was only trying to emphasise obviousness of such possibility.



    11 ditë më parë

    @couldn't care less i meant if local clubs can arrange , big tournaments can arrange much better. I am not calling you stupid bro. Sorry if sounded rude. I am just a kid đŸ„ș

    @HERO PLAYZZZ wasn't it originally specifically about a situation where they don't have extra? I'm not stupid enough not to understand that if there are spare pieces to be used, they will be used



    12 ditë më parë

    @couldn't care less I dont know where and how you play but i played one OTB tournament at local club and they gave extra one piece of each. Though original pieces were wooden and extra were plastic. But yes we got it. I lost the tournaments 4 matches so i remember đŸ€ŁđŸ˜­

    Promotion to a Queen leads to a Stalemate.
