James Malcom: How do you add in the author name exactly? It's Gyula Breyer. After about a month of not using my editing powers, here is the first problem I have chosen to enter in! I will be adding more joke promotion problems in here soon and classify them a little bit more. (2020-01-28)
Mario Richter: Fritz 6 gives
1. exf8=N+ Kxf8 2. Kd7 Ng5 3. Nc6 Bxe6+ 4. fxe6 Nxe6 5. Kxe6 Rg8 6. Nxd8 f5 7. Kf6 Rg6+ 8. Bxg6 hxg6 9. Ne6+ Ke8 10. Kxg6 f4 11. exf4 exf4 12. Nxf4
as a win for White (+7.44)
Can somebody with a stronger chess program find a better defense for Black? (2020-02-11)
James Malcom: It seems that 2. Kd7! is the one move that cooks this problem. The Black knight can’t move to release Black’s pieces as then Black will lose their bishop. 2. Nd7+ merely draws. (2020-02-12)
Peter Wong: Not only is there a cook, but the intention doesn't seem to work either. If you manually set up the position after 1.exf8=black queen for the Stockfish engine, it finds no clear win for White. (2020-02-12)
James Malcom: Well in the intention, if 1... Be7? then 2. Kc7 Qg7 3. Nxe4 Qg2 4. Nd6+ Kf8 5. Nd7+ Kg7 6. Ne8#. It's only after 1... Qe7 2. Nd7 Qex6 3. fxe6 Ke7 does it become a draw. It seems that all known tasks with White promoting to a Black queen are cooked. It should not be surprising, but it is indeed sad. Not even Bengston's draw study P1372297 is correct. It shouldn't be to hard to make a new, correct draw study, whether or not it's based on Bengston's work, but now a winning one seems further elusive as this seems to be the only way work of it's kind.
