The Pawn

The other type of move a Pawn may make is one in which it makes a capturing move to the square in front to the left, or the square in front to the right.

! Important: when the pawn moves like this, it may not move to an empty square!

Notice that the White Pawn cannot move directly forward. That's because when the pawn moves straight forward, it cannot make a capture.
