Re: Arbitration question

I mean, say, for checking WhatsApp, posting on ecforom, etc Wouldn't a laptop or tablet be more suitable? No danger of noise from an incoming call or text. But if an arbiter is engrossed on their phone, tablet or computer they aren't watching the players. Some tournaments and national leagues are a...

Can the arbiter use cellphone in the playing Hall?
Using it to make a call would be heavily discouraged unless one were calling the emergency services.

Re: Arbitration question

Soheil >What does it mean that "Going to the toilet is not necessarily a valid reason for stopping the clocks" Why "not necessarily"? When can it be a valid reason?< This is a note in the Arbiters' Manual 2018 about Article 6.11.4. But you have shortened it, suggesting you have an earlier edition o...

Re: Arbitration question

Considering " If the default time is 0, the arbiter has to declare the game lost for the players who are not present at their chessboards." , isn't the "has to" in conflict with article 6.7.1 which leaves it to the arbiter's discretion?

Can white win?

Re: Arbitration question

Sorry, Should we be more lenient to young players? Like declaring them lost on the 3rd illegal move? The FIDE Laws of Chess prohibit this, however it is common in England to vary the number of illegal moves in Rapidplay before a child loses the game.
