why the last step is to change pawn into rock, not queen?
Nice puzzle... I would have take a Queen. hehe
If you promote the pawn to queen it will be a draw. Black can not move any the remaining pieces ig you for queen
It will be stalemate if you promote to queen.
It will be a draw if you go for queen or bishop
Thats why it wasnt possible to promote into a queen! I know that... but in real game maybe I wouldnt see it. ;)
This is a really good and logical puzzle
I see it now, very nice puzzle, thanks
very cool solution
