# Stalemate in 1

Diagarm A and B are similar, but different solutions (of course). Both solutions HAS to stalemate in 1. Both puzzles are made by John Beasley. Both- I compare too much.

I know that  likes posting puzzles with illegal solutions, so the second one is 1. d8=Black Pawn stalemate. i cant figure out the first one.

EDIT: of course the black pawn can move after 1.d8=Black Pawn! therefore I do not know the solution.

in that case the solution to the second one is probably: 1.d8=black king?
and in the first puzzle: white king

Tip: I actually post the outrageous, and you have to look at the promotion. Another tip: Both puzzle have a different promotion.
