Justin, you are mising the take "en passant". It is able to be played when a pawn advance from it initial house to the fourth house, and there is a pawn of the other color in the fourth house, that what diagram shows. In our case, the Black, if itīs interesting to do so, can take the white pawn that just moved, with its pawn, that is placed at the third house.

Read about "to take en passant".
