I thought yu could not castle after you have been in check but the computer still allows it to happen?
You cannot castle to get out of check. Nor can you castle into or through check. But if you have been checked in the past you can still castle.
people are moving the king then back to the space,,, and then castling?
If you move your king you lose the right to castle.
You cannot castle at all if you King has moved, and if a Rook has moved, you cannot castle on that side.
1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. Bb5+ Black has been checked but has not lost the right to 0-0 or 0-0-0
1. f4 e6 2. g4 Qh4+ Black has been checked and HAS lost the right to
0-0 or 0-0-0. So it seems if you are checked on the 2nd move--you lose the right to 0-0 0-0-0 but if you are checked on the 3rd move--you do not lose the right to castle.
You missed one John_Doe18 - the king is not allowed to move through check in order to castle !For example, white may not castle queenside if d1 is under attack even though all other conditions are met.
