The Advanced Pawn:
Part of the Advanced Beginner's Chess Guide (Section 1) and the
Chess Strategies Guide (Section 2: Studying the Pawns)
Any Pawn which makes it to the 5th Rank (thus into enemy territory), or beyond, is Advanced, and gets a plus point. In Diagram 1, below, White's c-pawn has moved into the enemy's territory, making it an Advanced Pawn.
Incidentally, in Diagram 1, if it were Black's turn, Black could turn either d- or f- pawns into Advanced Pawns, with ...d4; ...dxe4; or ...fxe4, respectively.
