Re: Arbitration question

A question for Soheil - I've read this thread and the scenarios in it for about a year and always wondered - are these issues that have come up in tournaments you have run, or are they theoretical? Some occurred to me as a player/arbiter, some are asked by my seniors in exam and telegram/Whatsapp g...

Re: Arbitration question

What should an arbiter do if a player, instead of completing his K-side casting, just moves his king to g8 and press the clock?

Re: Arbitration question

John - Article A4,4 addresses this issue for rapidplay and blitz. If the arbiter observes both kings are in check , he shall wait until the next move is completed. Then, if an illegal position is sill on the board, he shall declare the game drawn. Thus White Ke1 Rd1. Black kd8 re8 White's clock is ...

Re: Arbitration question

Soheil, A.4.4 applies only when both kings are in check; or if there is a pawn on the rank furthermost from it starting position, Thus you have asked a new question. Imagine one where the white K is on d3 and all of white's other pieces are on their original squares. You can tell several moves have...

Re: Arbitration question

How do you want to apply A4.4, when the article is for an illegal position?
What would happen if the arbiter intervenes, penalizing Black and retracting the illegal move?

Re: Arbitration question

In a not sufficiently supervised rapid game, the arbiter in his usual visits to the tables, observes a White King in check with his opponents clock running, and then he observes Black making an illegal move also, placing his King into check and pressing his clock.
What should the arbiter do?

what can I do?

Hello. I got a FIDE-Instructor certificate and opened a chess club, just to realize after 4 years that I cannot speak well and have a rather unattractive face. Thanks to my referring to a psychiatric after a breakup, I realized that my 7th facial nerve is malfunctioning. Now what can I do about it? ...

What does retract mean in:

each time my mind goes there, I stop myself, and though it is not clear where my thoughts retract to, there is often a lull;
