Event #109 Pawn Grabbers

Condition: None

If it is a legal move to capture a pawn and there are no legal moves for the opponent to capture the piece that captured that pawn on the next move, then it is required to make a capturing move.

Note 1: The rule is almost the same as a capture being required when you can capture an unprotected pawn, but not quite. There are exceptions, such as discovered attacks ignoring defenders and the king not being allowed to put itself into check (while the king would normally count as a defender).

Note 2: A capturing move being required means you can make any capturing move you want.
