My pawn has done a vanishing act in one of my games. I don't know what happened. Could someone explain? I know it's only a pawn but it's potentially a baby queen. That what i read somewhere anyway hee hee
probably en passant
If it was for move 16 of the game linked below, then yes, it was an "En Passant" capture. Wikipedia it - a lot of people aren't familiar with it when they first start out:-)
Every baby Queen a wanted baby Queen!
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh... I've never heard of this before, sigh. Thankyou for enlightening me.
