En-Passant: How it Works

En-Passant is intended to prevent pawns from avoiding being captured when they move two squares. So, if you move the white pawn to d4, it will be captured by en-passant. If you move it to d3, it’s a normal capture.

    when 1two pawns stand side by side on the 5th rank one pawn can move
    diagonally and take the other pawn. Easy and simple : )

    When kf1 is approaching kc3, there is a chance for the pawn to move two squares and check (black king will be at c5).
