    These posts are priceless. I haven't laughed this hard in years. Examples that don't show the stated point and impossible board positions. Oh man... yitzd you're funny.

    Some players, when they can mate with an underpromotion to rook or bishop rather than a queen, seem to believe the underpromotion adds a degree of elegance--and rubs it in.

     Ok, sometimes, but that don't help me much! Is there a rule, a tip maybee when should I queen a pawn, knight a pawn, rook it and sometimes bishop it?

    I still feel that I'm missing something, please help Embarassed

    Yes, underpromotion can be very useful. Just wondering, do you have any better examples? The bishop one is very far-fetched. It is an impossible position to achieve
