Yeah I understand that but why a rook over a queen unless to avoid stalemate, which he wasn't?

I was wondering if there are any nice underpromotions out there that led to a victory.
Originally posted by Drew LMaybe if you always promote to queen instead of underpromote, unless it takes you to stalemate or repetitive move draw.
Any comments or suggestions to improve my play are always gratefully recieved.
Originally posted by FabianFnasHere is a puzzle with under promotion (from a real game) and I like the way black is just a move away from promotion with a rook behind the pawn...but still doomed:
Sometimes a knight is preferable over queen, by deliver a fork from the promotion square.
