Amen. Read full chapter 1 timothy 6:11-16 ask The Holy Spirit to guide you in Jesus Name we pray amen

    Why not Queen to f7 (on timestamp 9:50)? Attacks the rook, denies the square the knight wants to jump to, and creates a double attack on the knight as well (bishop + queen attacking square knight currently on)

    It's called en passant pawn capturing, when your pawn is on its 5th rank, and the opponent's pawn moves 2 squares. Look it up.

    5:22 - how does that pawn capture work?

  98. Arion Selmanaj

    Arion SelmanajΠριν 19 ημέρες

    Google "en passant" for more percise answers. Essentially when the pawn of the other color moves 2 squares ahead and you have your own pawn next to it, you are allowed to treat it as if it only moved for 1 square (and thus can capture it) in the same turn the pawn was used. If you dont capture the rule "falls" and the pawns behave normally again. I hope that explains it, english isnt my native language, sorry
