My assistant Tom Demark MD remembers that when he was in third grade in Independence, Missouri, his teacher Mrs. Graycheck taught the class to play chess, and organized a tournament. Tom was the strongest player. In this classroom, pawns promoted only to pieces already captured. (If there was none available, I have assumed that the pawn never promoted.) This must have been implemented to prevent borrowing from other sets, which would have left some with missing queens.
