Underpromotion to Knight

  • #1

    This is a game which I played, in which I determined that 26... d1=N was the strongest move. Comments?

  • #2

    Bf5+ then d1=Q wins a rook instead

  • #3

    But 27. Kc2 D1=Q+ 28. Kxc3 Qxf1 loses the knight.

  • #4

    Instead of 28...Qxf1 try Qc2#

  • #5

    28... Qc2+ 29. Rxc2

  • #6

    What?

    It's a game which I played in which I considered a knight promotion to be the strongest move. However, I generally question my logic, and was wondering if anyone saw this differently.

    No I mean where did that rook in post #5 come from? Are we looking at the same variation?

    idk something like this?  didn't spend a ton of time on it so theres prob something wrong with the Kxc3 variation on 1st move

    oinquarki, you still didn't answer how to respond to Rf1xc2.

    Yeah, I see I was wrong. Shocker.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys!

    2. Kxc3 Rbc8 3. Nxd2?
    Given the coming check, perhaps 3.Kb2 or 3.Kb3 and some desperate block of the d-pawn.
