When two pawns face each other on neighboring squares which are not separated
by a fence, the player whose turn it is can jump the opponent’s pawn
(and place himself behind him), thus advancing an extra square. If there is a fence behind the said pawn, the player can place his pawn to the left or the right of the other pawn.
