In this video, I play against IM Levy Rozman (Gotham Chess) in Samay Raina’s fascinating new variant: Poison Pawn Chess. Here are the rules…
-Before the game we each secretly select a single non-center pawn to be our poisoned pawn.
-If a player’s poisoned pawn is captured at any point, that player wins — but with one exception: If a player uses their poisoned pawn to capture the opponent’s poisoned pawn, then it is considered a win.
– In our first game we played, poisoned pawns are not allowed to capture pieces. In the subsequent two games, poison pawns are allowed to make captures.
While the rules seemed a bit confusing at first, we quickly on the hang of it and had some epic battles…
