chess puzzle 97 for kids
1. c8=Q#
This chess puzzle is dedicated to the mate at promotion theme... Have a look at the position above. The Black king can move on d7 and f8, and is protected from the attacks of the White rook and bishop. Now please pay your attention to the White pawn on c7. According to the chess rules, the above pawn can be promoted to the queen if the pawn moves on c8 (the Black bishop may not take on c8 because it is pinned against the king)... To mate in one, the White pawn moves on c8 to be promoted to the queen and to deliver checkmate at promotion. Learn.

1. a8=N#
This puzzle is also dedicated to the mate at promotion theme, but there is one big difference here... Have a look at the position above. The Black king is blocked; the squares around him are attacked, and the king cannot move. It looks that the king is quite safe inside, but that is not correct... Now please pay your attention to the White pawn on a7. According to the chess rules, the above pawn can be promoted to the queen if the pawn moves on a8. According to the same rules, any pawn may be also underpromoted to the rook, bishop, or knight... The pawn is usually promoted to the queen, but sometimes underpromotion is much stronger... To mate in one, the White pawn moves on a8 to be promoted (underpromoted) to the knight and to deliver checkmate at promotion (underpromotion).
