Good Knight

I have been playing with my friend Revone1 and he has collected a pawn promotion many a time. He was one of the first to show me the value of a knight when faced with the choice of promoting one's pawn. I have yet to use it wisely. I can be honest; as well as I play there is little promotion going on. However the simplicity in yesterday’s daily puzzle was wonderful. Not many novices would think to promote to knight, and the puzzle was a great exercise to show any newcomer to chess, that taking your time to think through what might at first seem like an obvious move; Promote to most powerful piece, QUEEN! Can be the very thing to lead to victory. 

Patience is a virtue
