    En passant - French for "in passing" - is probably the most confusing move for novice chess players. In fact, many may not even know the move exists, making it the source of many arguments

    yes I know they toyed with various names but no one could agree so it remains new forest/aparantly there is one in Germany named after a chocolate cake/I was a member of chessworld but thought it poor try GameKnot chess a site that has features not on RHP its free and you start with 6 but as you progress you end up with 12

    very true but its not really a confusing move when used to it.
    but yes on the board does creatye arguments when not known by your opponent.
