Hi chess.commers! Its Didi2, back with a new blog post. This one is all about castling queenside. As some of you may know, yesterday I published another blog on how to castle kingside. Castling queenside is just what it sounds like. You have to castle:but towards the queenside. All spaces between the king and the queenside rook should be empty, meaning you should have developed your queen knight and bishop.

Here's an example:

Note:I'm sorry but you have to go to the bottom of the page to see the diargram. I am having some issues posting my blog today. It is the first diargram, right underneath the text. 

Now, to queenside castle, move your king two spaces to the left. On chess.com, it automatically queenside castles for you. The diagram to the right will show what a queenside castle looks like.

Here are some rules about queenside castling: 

-you cannot castle out of check

- if your king has already moved, then you cannot castle

Thank you for reading my blog! This was a very simple post and you should read the great info on this site:http://www.chessvariants.com/d.chess/castlefaq.html.
