    Take a look at game: 7515103

    How was this move made? Maybe this is a rule that I am not aware of. If so, please enlighten me. He took my pawn with a pawn by moving in front of my pawn. Was this a malfunction?

    Thanks,

    Hi Jr

    This is not a malfunction, the rule is called En Passant. You can find out about it on the help index. A lot of players new to the game dont know about this rule. It stops players jumping passed advanced pawns.

    It's a special move available to members, non-subscribers can't do it.

    Anyone can make the move. Members or non-subscribers. Just because you're a non-subscriber does not mean you're not allowed to make legal chess moves.

    What a great way for raising cash!

    How about some more special rules for subscribers?

    Like a queen that can move as a knight as well!
