Very unusual and interesting!
Underpromotion is great!
i recently traded off my pawn for a knight,to insure checkmate.Whatever that particular game dictates
Interesting? very Unusual? Not so sure
Second move is hard to find.
Maybe the underpromotion gets to mate quickest, but I suspect there were alternatives.
yes this is not really a problem... is it?
At first, I tried the mate in 4: 3) Nhf7+ Qh7 4) Qxh7#
melutu....knight and rook prevent k. onto f . file------not game related,an open r. on f. file..a passed p. attacking the rook and the n.+ working w/ a Queen on a open h. file is a little much for actual chess game.
Very interesting pawn promotion.Nice one.
3. Nf6 would mate after the queen's block on 3 ... Qh8 4 Qxh8++!
