45 ( +1 | -1 ) Can you castle through a aptch guarded by a BishopAs per my question, if my Bishop is guarding the line between a Rook and a King, can the King still castle? I thought not, but it happened in my game :
31 ( +1 | -1 ) that move is allowedthe rook is allowed to pass through a square controlled by the other player, the king is not allowed to.
I did read that there was an incident when a famous player (I can't remember who) wasn't sure if the rook was allowed to pass through a square controlled by his opponent and had to ask! I don't know if this is true though.
25 ( +1 | -1 ) Problem?...The thing a King can not do while castling, is pass through check... If you look very carefully... Whites King did not pass through check while he castled... The "b1" is not even touched remotely by the King... Therefore it is a perfectly legal move...
