    It has always been my understanding of Chess and the promotion of a pawn that the piece must be replaced immediately when it acquired the eighth rank before you hit the clock and if you hit the clock while the pawn is still on the board in blitz you lose if I’m wrong can somebody correct me with the proper rule
