SOME LESS KNOWN RULES >>
DOUBLE STEP OF PAWN.
A pawn in its initial position can move forward either one or two squares (double step).
NOT ALLOWED - MOVING TWO PAWNS
Some people believe that instead of one double step, you may also move two pawns only one square from their starting positions within one move. This rule doesn't exist in chess.
CAPTURING ''en passant"
If after a double step a pawn is placed directly next to an opponent's pawn, it can be taken as if it had only advanced one square.
For more Info >> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pawn_(chess)#Capturing
A pawn reaching the opponent's first rank (White's 1st rank or Black's 8th rank) can be changed into any piece except a pawn (logically) or a king, regardless whether such a piece has already disappeared from the board after a capture. So it's well possible that after the promotion, one side has two queens on the board or even more.
TIP OF THE DAY
HOW TO PLAY OPENINGS?
First place one, if possible two pawns in the center. Then move the knights from their starting squares. Now develop both bishops. Castle, move your queen to connect both rooks and place them on the central files.
HOW TO WIN AT CHESS?
It's a good policy to wait for your opponent's mistakes. Capture all pieces the other side leaves unprotected. Take care that your own pieces are all well covered.

WHAT IS ''CASTLING''?
Castling is a special move in the game of chess involving the king and either of the original rooks of the same color. It is the only move in chess (leaving aside promotion) in which a player moves two pieces at the same time. Castling consists of moving the king two squares towards a rook on the player's first rank, then moving the rook onto the square over which the king crossed.
