A pawn captures another piece by moving diagonally one square forward to the square where the enemy piece is located. The pawn cannot capture a piece that is directly in front of it. Another way a pawn captures is under a special rule which applies only to another pawn. If White has a pawn on the 5th rank and Black moves a pawn one file over two spaces from the 7th rank to the 5th rank, the White pawn may capture the Black pawn even though the black pawn is now right beside it by moving one square diagonally forward right behind the Black pawn. This is called capturing "en passant"
Yes, it can kill, or rather capture/checkmate a king in chess. A pawn can capture any other piece on the board. A king can be checkmated by any other piece on the board except by the other king.
No, it cannot move unless it can capture or the blocking piece is moved out of the way.
The king just moves onto it, same as any other capture. The difference is that the king cannot capture a piece or pawn protected by another piece or pawn, as this would place him in check (attacked, subject to capture).
The diagonal attack of a pawn is the only way a pawn can capture another chess piece besides 'En Passant' attack ~ see related link below .
The pawn has the power of capturing any chess piece .
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.
Diagonal attacking is the only way a pawn can capture another chess piece , besides a En Passant capture , since this is the only way a pawn can attack or threaten another chessmen . See related link below to additional information on how a pawn moves , attacks and captures .
No, a pawn can not check or checkmate a king.
Yes , a pawn recently promoted to Queen is subject to immediate attack or capture as any other chess piece is open to capture/attack .
You may capture a queen with any piece, be it a rook, a pawn, or even a king.
The pawn can checkmate the king but only in conjunction with at least one other piece to protect the pawn from capture by the king and at least one enemy piece placed near the king so that it cuts off any escape avenues the king would have. If a pawn places a king in check and the king is completely surrounded by his own pieces in such a way that its only move would be capture the pawn and if no enemy piece is placed so that it can capture that pawn and if the pawn is protected from capture by one of its own pieces, the pawn has checkmated the king.
