Promotion Monster (2)

In the previous lesson about pawn promotion, your pawn could simply race to the promotion square and queen. In this lesson that doesn't work anymore. The black king is always inside the square of the pawn.


Still, your pawn can manage to get to the queening square. That’s because your king is going to help. He can block the black king and thus keep him from catching your pawn.

Check the examples to see how this works.

What do you have to do?

Block the black king to promote your pawn.
Note: sometimes you need to continue fending off the king for some time. If your pawn starts walking too soon, the black king may still be able to stop it.
