This is a special capture made immediately after a player moves a pawn two squares forward from its starting position, and an opposing pawn could have captured it as if it had moved only one square forward. In this situation, the opposing pawn may capture the pawn as if taking it "as it passes" through the first square. The resulting position is the same as if the pawn had only moved one square forward and the opposing pawn had captured normally.

Technically, the king is never actually "captured" in Chess. That said, a pawn can certainly be used to put a king in "check", though unless the pawn is protected by some other piece the king can simply capture the pawn on its next move.

Yes, IF it promotes(reaches the other side of the board) into one. You can also promote your pawn to a rook, bishop, or knight, but not a king.

What can a pawn take out in chess?

A pawn can take any oponents piece


What takes out what in chess?

its very simple, as long as your piece can "legally" take your oponents, it can take it. eg a pawn can take a queen, a pawn is the least desired piece and a queen is the most valuable.


In the game chess what is the special exception of taking en-passant?

En-passant happens when the opponent moves a pawn up two squares, and only the turn immediately after the pawn moves, next to one of your pawns. Then, you take diagonally to the unoccupied space behind his/her pawn and remove his piece. It is the only chess move where the capturer does not take the opponent's piece's place.


Can you win a piece back in chess?

you get one of your pawns to the other side of the board. then, you can take what ever piece you lost in the beginning. (besides a nother pawn)


Do you only get the chess piece whose square you land on?

Almost always, this is true; you only get the chess piece whose square you land on. An exception is called 'en passant', and even here you get to take a piece by landing on the square the piece just moved over. It is a special move involving Pawn takes Pawn that you would have to read about before using.


Can you take up an apponents piece in chess without moving?

Yes, you can. There is a move called "en passant" that enables you to take a pawn without moving. If the opponent's pawn jumps two spaces in its first move to avoid being taken by your pawn, "en passant" is in effect and you can take his pawn.


In chess cant a king only move forward on its first go?

No, a king can move one square in any direction on its first move or it can 'castle.' The pawn is the only piece that is restricted to forward-only movement. The pawn may only move forward (toward the enemy), one square at a time, unless it's making an opening move, in which case it can move one or two squares. The pawn can only change direction to take a piece -- a pawn can take a piece that is one square forward diagonally (that is, up and right, or up and left one square). The pawn cannot take a piece directly in front of it.


Can a bishop take 2 pieces in one move in chess?

No, each chess piece can only take one in a single movement.


When you get a piece back where does it go in chess?

Chess pieces (King, Queen, Bishops, Knights, Rooks) can move forward, back, and from side to side, even to return to their starting position. Pawns can only more forward and can not move backwards. A pawn can only move diagonally one square to capture an opponent's chess piece. Bishops can only move diagonally along their starting square's colour. Knights can jump over pieces, but must move in an 'L' movement (two squares forward and one to either side, or one forward and two squares to either side.


When playing the game chess do you have to take an opponents piece?

No.


Can a king take a non-threatening piece?
