Huh??? I don't follow that at all.*Originally posted by hipercandombe***14 queens.....**

Take for example files A and B. Lets say that you have a5 and b4. After b5 axb5 en passant and for files A and B you Queen 3 pawns.

Every two files...3 queens...

So yoy have 12 Queens like that and then the 2 queens...

Thats make 14.

It´s a strange game...but..... - 16 Mar '06 14:13

You are forgetting that you have some minor pieces that can be used to move pawns around each other as well.*Originally posted by hipercandombe***taking en passant allows 2 pawns to turn into queens.**

In the other column yoy have only 1 pawn (the other was taken en passant)

So you can queen up to 12 pawns, not the 16 becase...

But Now im thinking more and i think you can have 16 queens....let me think a little bit more - 16 Mar '06 19:50 / 1 edit
