Pawns travel one hex per move in any of the three forwardmost directions, but they capture hard-forward-left and hard-forward right. (See below.) Note that black pawns and white pawns travel in opposing directions. Note also that the skewed hexes of the 9-Pawn chess board have changed the angles such that the hex immediately to the right of a pawn is in its capture range. In the illustration below, the bursts show where pawns capture.
