    Hi Community I play here for a short time wanting to

    improve my chess skills, and today I played a strange game.

    If you look at the Moves #28 - 29# you can see my opponent

    crabing an pawn from an impossible position..

    How such things can happen?

    Thanks once before for answers.

    This is valid in chess as suggested by Shyam. The rule is

    "En passant (from Frenchin passing) is a move in the board game of chess.[1] It is a special pawn capture which can occur immediately after a player moves a pawn two squares forward from its starting position, and an enemy pawn could have captured it had the same pawn moved only one square forward. The opponent captures the just-moved pawn as if taking it "as it passes" through the first square. The resulting position is the same as if the pawn had moved only one square forward and the enemy pawn had captured normally."

    No it is not hacking... it is a legal, but meticulious move. The rules are so detail oriented that the move is rarely used. Few average people take that much time to pay attention to a pawn.
