Amazing Pawn Plays #2

I finnally learned how to insert chess boards but firefox won't let me paste the image so instead I'll do it like this:

White:

Pawn on a7

Pawn on e6

King on f6

Black:

Rook on d8

King on f8

Pawn on h3

Moves: e7+ Ke8 exd8=Q+ Kxd8 a8=Q+

moving to e7 is the APP, and it uses the power of thye skewer to take the rook as the king moves and the king will take the new queen but now that the rook is gone the pawn on the a file can safely promote and black shouls resign from here.

Well thats a wrap everyone and hope you enjoyed the weeks news!
