here's a dumb question is long-castling legal if the b1/b8 square is under attack? only the rook passes 'through' that square.

yes its legal as long as the king doesnt pass through it.

Hmmm... Is this a serious question?... How do you expect to mate people in fifty with questions like these?... Ahhhhh... I see... This is all a ploy to let our guard down isn't it...

to everyone But the real tough question is how to get your tiger activated especially when he gets too close to the rabbit or the river or ... err.... the tigress ;-)
I am sure BBG will agree with me. We did a lot of analysis the other day....

That's news to me I have always played under the assumption that if any square between the K and R or either piece that is to castle is under attack, that castling was not possible - even if only the rook.

I'm too lazy to look this up, but just for the record, would someone be kind enough to post a link on this?

That was what I thought. Only after I experienced it by myself in GK I know that it applies only for the King, not with the Rook.

Basic rule... While castling, if to Rook and King have not moved previously, the King can not castle through check...

BBG... I like the horsey/queenie thingy...

Viktor Korchnoi once asked an arbiter if castling was legal with his rook attacked, so you're in good company, mate-you-in-fifty.
