The Remote Knight Promotion-In A Kindergarden Problem
I was fiddiling around with Knight promotions today when I hit upon a funky idea-a knight promotion to avoid stalemate. All I had to do was somehow discourage a rook promotion! Then I realized something partway through my work-I was doing the remotest of remote knight promotions! Krabbe’s #89 has a few examples.
Intially, it wasn’t a kindergarden problem, but it almost was. After perhaps an hour of work, I produced the following.
(= 7+7 )
A knight promotion not for a waiting move nor a blocking move (see Lloyd’s #3 in Krabbe), but to avoid stalemate! A rook promotion works too, but then it is an #8. And all in a kindergarten problem no less!
