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.
I promote rook to have some fun. But in some reason, if the knight will be useful . Knight . It depends on the situation
i love to promote to queen
this is to my novice knowledge of chess probably the most famous """ under-promotion""" game ever; esp in a serious tournament...
(imagine the players as they spent time and gold travelling to have their game unfold like this ;) i am sure they will never forget that game, CHECK it out; now :)
I sometimes do it to show off, but to have fun at the same time, especially if my opponent drags the game on and wastes time in Live.

I promoted to a pawn and the adjudicator just got angry
i chose one of the following:
-to show off
-to avoid giving stalemate
-because only a knight would draw
i chose to show off because i want to show off
heres one that i uderpromoted to aviod stalemate
Here is my first time I under promoted
Savage, I agree with you completely exept for the fact that sometimes you need to promote to a rook/bishop/knight/whatever to avoid stalemate.
yes just to annoy people when they don't resign
i almost always under-promote to a rook since most endgames involve rook battles. thus it is good practice for me to fight with a rook. however if the enemy is going to recapture the promoted pawn i almost always make a Queen so they are 'forced' to recapture. i think once or twice i have made a B or N for tactical reasons but usually its a Rook my baby pawn promotes to...
I agree with SavageLotus. The queen can do everything the rook and bishop can do. The only way it can't move is like the knight, so thus, queen or knight if you're trying to win as quickly as possible.
Yes to checkmate with a rook,felt sorry for the guy as a queen wouldn't have reflected a close game,normally would have little mercy ;)
i always promote to a bishop and kinda show off.
just to troll someone, I underpromoted four pawns into four knights, borrowed from other sets at the tournament, lol.
If you don't have a spare queen, turn a captured rook upside-down and use that as a spare. If all rooks are still on the board, lay a pawn down flat and use that. Remember to pray that it doesn't roll.
