maybe it had happened a bit earlier in the game and already exchanged, this the lack of an e pawn as well
But the last move should have been f5, not two or three moves before. :)
Earlier exchange of white e-pawn for black f-pawn has occured correct.
No move-list in chess-mentor you read the comment & begin the lesson from that point in the game...
Looks like another case for En Passant...
netzach, truth. It's just bad wording. f5 was not Black's last move, else there would be something on f5, like White's piece. It looks obvious this exchange was at least two moves ago, because f5 square is empty.
agree, dig Sam Shankland up about it !
Maybe that's why he was still only an IM.
Andy, en passant makes sense.
I had a feeling that's what was going on.
Yes, I agree, but it was still at least two moves ago because now the Black Bishop is on f6 square.
exf e.p. Bxf6
Two moves ago.
And then White played Bh3...and voila (bear in mind, if you don't know this already, that "ef Bxf6" is considered one full move).
Yes, but how did you know White played Bh3? There's a move list?
Anyhow, from Black's perspective, as I outlined previously, 2 moves ago (or 1.5 moves!)
Sorry, but to me at any rate 1.5 moves ago does not equal 2 moves ago.
And presumably White has just played Bh3 (otherwise he could've played Bxe6+ after capturing en passant).
It's just bad wording. f5 was not Black's last move, else there would be something on f5, like White's piece. It looks obvious this exchange was at least two moves ago, because f5 square is empty.
So what? It doesn't say the exchange happened on the previous move. It says the exchange happened recently. The only person blabbing on about the immediately preceding move is you.
It says "black has recently played f5." So why don't you take it as, "oh, ok, so black has recently played f5" but assume it just has to mean black has played f5 on the previous move?
it's not bad wording. It's bad reading.
lol, OK, OK.
