En Passant is a Special Rule of Chess. This involves special pawn moves which are exception to the general form of capture. En passant is sometimes wrongly spelt as ampersand or ampasant. En passant is a French phrase which means ‘in passing’. This basic chess tutorial will help you learn the different types of moves your pawn can play (be it white or black). It is surprising to see that not many chess players are aware of this rule. In this chess lesson, I will teach you the basic chess ideas, tips & tricks that you can play around with to make best use of this rule to your advantage & win more games fast. This rule is sometimes also used as a special strategy & tactics to surprise your opponent. Generally, captures are done in chess where the capturing piece moves onto the square of the piece it is going to capture. But En Passant is an exception to this rule. In en passant, the capturing piece, that is, the pawn, moves to a different square than that of the target pawn. These pawn moves can be very useful in chess end games where the pawns are fighting for promotion.
2 Important Conditions of En Passant:
► The option to capture is available for one move only, that is, the immediate next move. You cannot use this anytime during the game.
► This option can be exercised only if the pawn has moved 2 squares on its first move. It cannot be used if the pawn moves one square at a time.
