Promotion: Middle Game
Compiled by Penguincw
--*--

Games where promotion takes place in the opening or middle game. In this collection, at the time of promotion, there are at least 26 points on the board (total for both players, kings & pawns not included) at the time of promotion (so if a piece is captured for a pawn promotion, it's included in the "count"). However, only pieces that were originally on the board are considered in the "count" (i.e. promoted pieces do not count). This collection features only games from the 20th century (1900-1999). Games are in order by date.

Note: If another promotion occurs in the game, but is not during the middle game, it's not included.
