Simultaneously selected moves are only carried out when they do not conflict.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Paul Townsend wrote on 2003-10-17 UTCGood ★★★★Slight confusion. Under 'Conflict Moves', para 2, second diagram, there seems to be a mistake. The write-up only makes sense if the knight on d6 is *black*. Otherwise great to even out the 'first move advantage'. When castling, the king's intermediate square could be momentarily in check by e.g. the opponent's queen moving in the opposite direction across a different rank, even if the starting and finishing positions were not in check. This would presumably forbid the castling move. e - Q - - - - - - d - - - - - - - - c - - - - - - - - b P P - P P P P P a R - - K - - - - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Black moves Qe4, White tries to castle. As the king moves through a3 the queen moves through e3. CHECK! White move fails. Queen moves on to e4, no check at the end of the move.
