Kellen, I don't understand, at the end of the game with 3 knights, you've stalemated White. Tablebase shows the position is drawn after 1. Ng1.
Wow Kellen, nice game!
This is a really cool underpromotion.
rook promote checkmate is trivial if it's on the promotion. the rest are show-offs or tactical trainer knights, lol.
588's (yes, three digits) aren't known for their anotating.
Kellen, your game makes absolutely no sense to me.
Yes I have!
Lasker trap - there's people that fall for it in real games, mainly novice QG players.
Yeah - 'really'! ... Was probably played between two of 'her[?]' [Kellen_Chessman] other 'selves' ...
I just LOVE the accuracy with which that game was played!
When I was five I under-promoted because I didn't know you could have more then one queen... But now I only do it occasionally, usually if somebody won't resign. When I show off I make a bunch of queens, my record is five.
When I want to have a second queen and my set doesn't have one, I would tell my opponent and place a knight, bishop or rook(which is not already in the board) and use it as queen!!!
I believe that the ratio of me under- promoting to promoting a queen is 1:20
I kinda over exaggerated. I never promoted to a knight, I promoted to a queen.
I just underpromoted!
And I also won!
There's a trap black can fall into where a pawn ends up eating a knight to under-promote to a knight, which takes away any breathing space and allows checkmate.
For fun yeah
I lied. I've always queened(accept when I forked king and queen with a knight. It was fun.
I don't imagine that someone will promote bishop.
