Am I right in understanding that the rules imply the following? 1: A piece is autostopped if continuing would take it beyond the edge of the board. 2: A piece with momentum from a noncapturing move is autostopped if continuing would take it to an occupied square. 3: A piece with momentum from a capture is autostopped if continuing would take it to a square NOT occupied by an enemy. 4: A piece can be autostopped in the middle of a momentum move, so that a Rook moving from a4 to f4 on an otherwise empty rank would continue to h4 on the next move. 5: The Knight's move is a single step, so that a Knight moving from d2 to b3 would be autostopped immediately rather than continue to the a file.
