Re: Arbitration question

A player forgets to press his clock. His captain is behind him, and touches the shoulder of him. The opponent stops the clock and calls the arbiter. What has to be done?

Re: Arbitration question

Leaving the venue without the arbiter's permission does not have a defined penalty associated with it, so it's up to the arbiter which of the penalties they apply. I think I'd need to know why the player left the venue before I came to a conclusion as to whether the penalty was OK or too lenient. H...

Re: Arbitration question

Today, the opponent of a player left the venue for 15 minutes, and when he returned, the arbiter gave him 2-minutes penalty. Was she (the arbiter) correct?
The player whose opponent left was not satisfied.

The arbiter has many penalties at his/her disposal. Which one should be applied when?

Re: Arbitration question

The manual says the arbiter has to intervene in case of violation of article 4, but it doesn't state what exactly is to be done

Re: Arbitration question

soheil_hooshdaran You mention that this game was a Women's National Championship played under Blitz format. How many arbiters were running the section and how many players took part ?

Re: Arbitration question

No. If white has played fxg4, she has touched both the f-pawn and the g-pawn, so the laws mandate she must make a legal move involving one of those pieces if possible. Well, she surely wouldn't love to make the capture, and it's unfair and illogical to force her make the capture. It may well be, bu...
