    One guy wanted to switch off the en passant "feature" because he didn't like it...still one of my alltime favorite posts. Smile

    "en passant" was actually created to reward attacking players. it used to be that the first move of a pawn could ONLY be one square forward (unlike the two, now). with the advent of the two moves forward, attacking chess was encouraged. however, that could mean that an attacking player could over extend his pieces and then be in trouble by allowing a pawn to simply pass it without being challenged. Thus, the "en passant" which is French for "in passing."

    hope this helps in explaining why the "en passant" is.

    also, in order to take passed pawn, you have to do it in next move, after that, no go.
