http://www.chess.com/livechess/game.html?id=261689517 excuse me if this is not the right forum for this but i am not even sorry, nor do i care about the fact that i've lost this game..
ok move 42 thru 43... and this is NOT the first time it happened, i got confused by the fact soo much that i ran out of time.. fix this please, this just has ruined my buzz...
The fix is for you to read the rules. This is called en passant.
ok i am sorry, no offense meant, does en passant means ur crappily positioned pawn can just do insane rediculous stuff.. who needs the queen when you can knock a pawn to the left of ya AND get a free move forward where it wasnt even placed??? what is the point thats just dump
off to read the rules
"En pa-what? Oh damn, I am outta here..."
omg how did i not know this.. you can delete this post if you like. thanks for all the help
Even if it is a rule, fix it.
LOL are u making fun of me?? i have glucoma
thats just too funny!
Then you should stop using glue.
One guy wanted to switch off the en passant "feature" because he didn't like it...still one of my alltime favorite posts.
"en passant" was actually created to reward attacking players. it used to be that the first move of a pawn could ONLY be one square forward (unlike the two, now). with the advent of the two moves forward, attacking chess was encouraged. however, that could mean that an attacking player could over extend his pieces and then be in trouble by allowing a pawn to simply pass it without being challenged. Thus, the "en passant" which is French for "in passing."
hope this helps in explaining why the "en passant" is.
Yeah, en crapsant took another soul here.
er...I think en passant was actually more created to "reward" positional players, but anyway...
One of the geniuses of en passant:
i no longer like french is how u helped me! not even the tower! ima put a pawn next to it, and en passant that bi..
also, in order to take passed pawn, you have to do it in next move, after that, no go.
