    This one is perhaps a bit more practical (and easier to solve).

    Perhaps you should have read the title and not visited then? The only reason you clicked it was because I said that your other puzzle had multiple good solutions.

    Anyway you're blocked because I don't want your useless spam on my threads.

    Why not promote to a queen?

    @Johnchen

    If promotes to a queen (assuming you're talking about post #8) white loses to Rg4+, which forks the king and queen, after which it becomes either a stalemate after either Qxg4 or Bxg4 as the Black king can't move to h5 and the pawn can't move, where as if it is a rook, then Rxg4 allows Kh5, so not a stalemate.

    Yeah draw, black can't promote because of checks/the threat of checkmate.
