    U can promote pawns! I've been promoting pawns into pawns in reverse directions Tongue out

    Some players, when they can mate with an underpromotion to rook or bishop rather than a queen, seem to believe the underpromotion adds a degree of elegance--and rubs it in.

     Ok, sometimes, but that don't help me much! Is there a rule, a tip maybee when should I queen a pawn, knight a pawn, rook it and sometimes bishop it?

    I still feel that I'm missing something, please help Embarassed
