    I played following Blitz game:


    at which point I wanted to take en-passant, which seems to be winning for white. The blitz feature didn't let me take en-passant, even though I tried several times. Is this a known bug? I've never seen it before. Maybe it was a one-time event.

    Very quick. I accidentally hit 'enter' instead of, maybe, 'tab' after writing the thread title.

    Use feedback (Bug Report) and give them a link to this thread. There may be a bug that won't let you capture when you are in check?

    That is a strange one because I have used the en-passant in a similiar situation to get out of check before.

    Check was just a guess, and who knows what kind of code changes the admins may have made.

    Right you are, and I believe mine was way back before the big crash.

    Something that I haven't seen happen much in games, that is the only one I can remember and I am nearing 5,000 game mark.

    Not sure if you caught it, but this user is asking about the blitz feature, not the regular games here at RHP.

    Yes, it is typed in over the top of the board, and I had my reading glass's on at the time.

    I use to play lots of blitz at (uchess), some would say with my game load I still do. They probably would be right too!
    Would be ok now to call 'no one" 'No One non sub-scum'?

    I was just making the point that in close to 5,000 games on here, I hadn't come across that particular situation. But then my chess sucks anyways, but I have fun with it.

    Some months ago, while playing Blitz, my opponent ran into the same -en passant- problem. I reported exactly the same bug.

    I had that problem too Thread 105886
    Later I saw it is possible to take en passent when you're not in check.
