When a king moves to the seventh rank, creating pawns on the eight rank, what happens with the pawns?
  • Are the pawns immediately promoted?
  • Are the pawns left on the eight rank and are immobile?
  • Are the pawns left on the eight rank, and can be promoted as a future white move?
  • Or does on place a piece besides a pawn in his guard on the eight rank?
As a related question, can the pawn promote to an Ubi-ubi?
