I'm not clear on something here. I understand that pawns can only be promoted upon reaching the oposing player's back row. But I'm not clear on how that is supposed to occur apart from the pawn managing to capture enough of the oposing player's pieces so as to move diagonally in the number of squares required to arrive at the oposing player's back row? Is that the only way to get a pawn to a point where it can be promoted?
