In chess how many turns is it until it is a draw?

In tournament chess, there is what is called the fifty-move rule: if there have not been any captures or pawn promotions for fifty moves, the game is called a draw. There are exceptions in specific game conditions where the rule is extended; however, these are very specific, and one would need a book of tournament rules in order to know them. To get the rules, contact either the United States Chess Federation or the International Chess Federation (FIDE).

How does a pawn capture a piece in chess?

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"

There are generally two ways:- 1. Conventional rule: in which a pawn facing diagonally and closest to other pawn( of different colour), it can capture that pawn and acquire its position. 2.

When the pawn is placed in initial position and facing the second pawn( of different colour) in conventional way( as mentioned in first method), suppose it moves two squares to avoid clash; however, second pawn can capture it by considering the first pawn 's move only by single square and acquire position one square less to the movement of first pawn.

What is en passant captures in chess?

En-passent prevents a pawn from using its initial two-space move to avoid capture from an advancing pawn. Imagine a white pawn has moved to the 5th rank. The pawn in an adjacent column would open itself to capture if it moved from 7th rank to 6th, but the double move it is allowed to take would place it at the 5th rank, beside the attacker. The en-passent rule allows the white pawn in the next turn only to capture that pawn as if it were in the 6th rank. The white pawn moves diagonally to the 6th rank of that column and the black pawn is removed and captured.
