Hi! Welcome to the first lesson in this series on how to move the pieces on the chess board. In today's post I will teach you how to move the pieces on the chess board.

I will start with the easiest piece first.

 

   The pawn.

The pawn can move 2 square from the start or 1 square from the start. It is up to the player to decide.

When the pawn reaches the last square it can possibly move, i.e. the 8th rank for white and 1st rank for black, the player can promote his pawn, to any piece except a pawn and king, i.e. Queen, Rook, Bishop, And Knight. This is a very useful thing especially in endgames. There are also many other special moves that you can make.

To find out more about these special moves, watch this video by FM Mike Klien, the Director of Content of Chess.com, on the special moves of the pawn.
