Pawn Promotion - Capture

by Dan

Can I take Blacks (I'm White) Rook AND promote to a Queen in the same move here. I can't seem to find the answer.


Hi Dan,

I have reproduced the chess diagram below to see the pieces clearly.

White moves
pawn promotion capture

Yes, White can capture the rook and promote the pawn at the same time to whatever he likes.

Of course he would promote the pawn to a queen in this case, because the queen is the strongest piece.
