My opponent said "promote to a queen" in the london championships because he knew it would be stalemate and draw after me wooping his sad pethetic ass. Then I said "knight please... checkmate!" Then he said "No its not I can mov..." *bursts into tears* *I put out my hand so as he can shake it mockingly*
I promote to rook if there is alreay queen on board and no queen piece nearby. In winning game i never ask for queen.
I promoted to rook instead of queen because then it would be stalemate
nothing to do..... If I promote a queen thats stalemate
To have a laugh azur nd because it a nuisence finding a queen
I actually promoted a Knight in a rated game years ago because it gave me a Knight fork winning material.
none of the above.
I generally will never get a 3rd or more queen.
It is almost like doing a dance after punching someone, and IDK.
But I have done to people who were rude verbally and talked smack or something like that.
Also if you can't mate with 2 queens and back-up... well
Any percieved double-meaning was honestly unintended.
Oops I think I just popped a rib from laughing
That's hilarious henry lmao
I do it to torture too lol fun being a douchebag in a tournaments sometimes.
wait so the guy dosen't want to resign why don't you checkmate him?
8rook checkmate once, rook on every file all promoted
Yes,but just to torture people,i once got 8 bishops
I've made them rooks when it wouldn't havr made difference. And this game just gave me a puzzle, but when I tapped the piece then the square it wouldn't move, do I had to click next and it did the move I had JUST. SAID. so then it decides to drop me by 154 points. Sheesh. Not even right
I've done the lasker trap before in a blitz game:
1. d4 d5
2. c4 e5
3. dxe5 d4
4. e3 Bb4+
5. Bd2 dxe3
6. Bxb4 exf2+
7. Ke2 fxg1=N+
8. Rxg1 Bg4+
9. Ke1 Qxd1+
I've promoted to a rook to avoid stalemate. Ive never been in a position where the knight or bishop is the better piece to promote to.
One common knight promotion is the lasker trap, maybe ill play that sometime hopefully
not in a tourney game, but for fun games i have done it a lot
"Yes, because a knight was more effective". But you can underpromote too a bishop too, though!
And once on purpose...to avooid stalemate.
