I have been trying to find a reference for a while. My friend thought i was making it up but now i have proof.
It's a very nice and perfect rule for chess.........
I was told that en passant can only be used once per game. Is this true?
En passant is the least well-known chess rule; I hope one day every chess player willl know it.
I have seen this move a few times when i play chess in my phone
Its one of the peculiar and interesting moves in the game of chess :) I love it !
I thought I knew all of the rules of Chess, until I saw this! AWESOME
I'm not sure I understand the confusion. It is simply a rule of the game,, and has been so for over 500 years. No great secret,, just uninformed players. As to fairness,, it's as fair as the pawn's ability to move two squares,, and a reasonable defense for the opponent against just that.
Chess is an enjoyable game,,, but if one chooses to play,, it behooves him to learn the rules.
As I have read here, I though it was an android's chess.com app bug when playing against computer. In fact, I suffered it many times and finally searched of it. I'm surprised to have kept this movement unknown until today, since I have been playing chess since I was a child!
y the last 1 just the image u get from making the diagram?
i've actually induced en passant on myself as a strategy to gain positional advantage. I wish I could say I've done it on more that one occasion, but this situation has presented itself only once.
1 time i lost my queen because the other guy did en passant. i didnt even know what it meant. ever since then i always ask the player to not play enpassant and neither do i.
Have used it quite often. One of my favorite plays on the board.
soo nice move,never heard about it.but its a really nice move
I was told that en passant can only be used once per game. Is this true? No it can be used as often as there are PAWNS that have not been used previously.The same pawn cannot be used twice
Someone called me a cheater for doing this...;]
Even though they thought they knew the game,,,they didn't
One time my pawn on the 2nd rank was attacked by a pawn on the 3rd rank, I moved my pawn 1 square and my opponent tried to take en passant!
