Re: Arbitration question

The other thing that has to happen is that white must make a legal capture of the g-pawn. She is unlikely to be too thrilled about realizing this. I was wondering about that. Can you argue that once White picks up the f pawn, which has no legal move, all bets are off and you can do whatever you lik...

Re: Arbitration question

Surely you remember the case at Islington where it was only discovered during Round 3 that a player had been absent from the start. Or is that tale apocryphal? There was a similar story, or perhaps the same one, about a junior tournament at the British. Someone who had withdrawn or who hadn't been ...

Re: Arbitration question

What's the difference between 'shall' and 'is' in: for the second completed illegal move by the same player the arbiter shall declare the game lost by this player. However, the game is drawn if the position is such that the opponent cannot checkmate the player’s king by any possible series of legal ...

Re: Arbitration question

Thanks. I notice that the Laws of chess is different from the Arbiters' manual. Why is the difference? In what order do the penalties of 12.9 have to be applied? a) The current Arbiters Manual is version 2 of September 2018. The difference from the Laws, so far as I can see, is only the paragraphs ...
