  ChessCoachClark: This game is prime teaching material for looking ahead, rather than 'automatically' Promoting. You get an instant stalemate by Promotion, but get an instant checkmate by Under-Promoting to a Knight! What a powerful demonstration they provided here, both the players and Thanks a gazillion!

Be well.
