Coup Turc
Both rules are illustrated simultaneously in the 'Coup Turc', a combination that illustrates the implications of the rule that the capture must be completed before the captured men are taken from the board, and the rule that a piece may not be captured twice.

A white man on f4 can choose 3 directions: f45, fg4 and f4g5. A capture does not necessarily keep a particular line and may end on the square of origin. The 'x' sign comes after the indices, for instance e8g6x, eg8x or f6x.
