What is a backward pawn?

Where does your new piece go when the pawn reaches the opposite side?

A pawn that has advanced and been promoted can become any piece the player choses. And that piece goes on the square that the pawn advanced to to be promoted. When the pawn is moved to the eighth rank, that pawn is displaced by the chosen piece. It goes right there. Note that the player who promotes a pawn can pick either a queen, rook, bishop or night. Period. If that means the player promoting a pawn is now playing with two or more queens, or three (or more) rooks, bishops, or nights, so be it. What the player wants, the player gets.

When can you not use en passant?

It can be used ONLY on your move, right after your opponent passes one of your advanced pawns with a pawn on its very first move. Your opponent has opted to move a pawn two squares ahead as its very first move. You have the option, on your very next move, of acting as if the pawn was only advanced one square, and you can capture the pawn (you capture it 'in passing') and advance your pawn to the square it would have occupied on a regular capture of that pawn. If you don't do it on your very next move, you lose the option. If an en passant capture is a player's only legal move, it must be done.
