Chess Basics for Beginners

Lex-Lawless

Hi Chess World,

Can anyone please help my friend understand the basic rules about castling?  He claims to be rated 1990 USCF, but started to abuse chess.com and me because he was unable to castle.  It made me laugh but maybe you can help my friend out by telling him the rules.

Here is our dialogue:

 

CheckMeQuick_: why can't I castle?

CheckMeQuick_: what the fruck

CheckMeQuick_: queen side is ok

ProfessorKnox: can't see it?

CheckMeQuick_: i can castle queen side

CheckMeQuick_: did not move king

CheckMeQuick_: computer error

ProfessorKnox: dude, my knight is blocking d8

ProfessorKnox: are you for real?

CheckMeQuick_: un frucking unbelievable

CheckMeQuick_: frucking chess.com

ProfessorKnox: don't blame the site

CheckMeQuick_: it would not let me castle

CheckMeQuick_: who do I blame?

CheckMeQuick_: you?

ProfessorKnox: are you on drugs

>GAME OVER - ProfessorKnox vs. CheckMeQuick_ - ProfessorKnox won on time (+12). Your new blitz rating is 1891.

>GAME ANALYSIS - Analyze this game - with your opponent | alone

CheckMeQuick_: fruck you

CheckMeQuick_: azzhole

ProfessorKnox: my knight blocks ur d8 square

CheckMeQuick_: you win on computer error

ProfessorKnox: duh

CheckMeQuick_: no it does not

CheckMeQuick_: your night is on e3

CheckMeQuick_: i can castle

ProfessorKnox: you can't pass through the square it is guarded

ProfessorKnox: my knight is on e6

ProfessorKnox: idiot

CheckMeQuick_: my king does not land on the square dude

CheckMeQuick_: stupid

CheckMeQuick_: my king ends up on c8

CheckMeQuick_: idiot

CheckMeQuick_: learn the rules

ProfessorKnox: it cannot pass through the square that is guarded

ProfessorKnox: ur a joke

ProfessorKnox: go back and learn the basics

CheckMeQuick_: play checkers

CheckMeQuick_: idiot

CheckMeQuick_: you don't know chess

Obviously checkmequick is some sort of new idiotic troll. Interesting to note that even if he could castle, he would still be losing badly!

I'm more disturbed by ProfessorKnox's music career. Got to his homepage LOL!

The last youtube video has a line "Rise up, time to take control, time to take these motherfuckers out before they rape your soul!"

HAHAHAHA.

Actually the rule in question is a little bit apocryphical. Only those who have opened a chess book that mentions the rules of the game AND read that particular part are aware of it. The rest learn it when a situation that this rule must be applied occurs over the board and their opponent happens to know it.
