Rules For The Player Who Owns a Passed Pawn

Rules for the player who owns a passed pawn

1) Control the square directly in front of the pawn;

2) Trade all the minor pieces so that a Knight or Bishop can't block the pawn;

3) Keep the Queens on so the opponent's King won't feel comfortable rushing up to combat your pawn;

4) Keep at least one Rook on.


I have just found this in a demo chess mentor see how the rules can be implemented,checkout this useful mentor course : IT'S A DEMO COURSE,THANKS TO CHESS.COM.

    Passed pawns must be pushed. Well, they have to be, as they are not allowed to move backwards, except for backward pawns which have been passed by others.

    Chess gets a bit complicated at times en passant!
