in the above diagram, what I wanted to do, when I was formulating the insert, was move the white bishop to b5, but the computer just wouldn't let me do it. It allowed me to move to c4, but not b5. Why?
I was trying to eventually get to a question about castling--but I couldn't even get there. The question was, in pretty much the above board, by and large, if the black queen is at a5, why can't I castle to get out of check? I was playing against the computer on this site, and it wouldn't let me do that. any thought? thanks--
It is against the rules of chess to castle to get out of check.
thanks-- I thought that was the case, but looked it up on chess faq, and it said that it was legal, if the king has not already moved (which would prevent castling anyway). is there some controversy in the game about this?
