The ECF website to which Ian refers also says ‘The ECF Board is responding to changes in the expectations of both members and potential members by working to move grading from a six monthly to a monthly update. The intention is to introduce the change with effect from the January 2020 grading list u...

I suspect that in many leagues, no matter how suspicious a player's behaviour, it would be considered insufferably rude to ask them whether they had a phone in their pocket. Just so that I'm clear in my mind as to what happens elsewhere, what's the formula for someone arriving at a league match by ...
Does anyone know when we would expect to see the December ECF Board minutes published based on past experience? I am expecting them to be at least partially redacted again. But still, I am interested in whatever will be published. It's not unusual for the minutes of meetings, of whatever type, to b...

It seems to me fairly obvious that those who are by nature extrovert are capable of behaving on occasion in an introvert manner and vice versa - one need look no further than the acting profession to see this is true. Extrapolating from there, we're all actors from time to time.

Full details of this event [including how to enter] to follow shortly but, apart from the fact that it will be FIDE-rated for the first time, it will follow a similar pattern to previous events in the series - venue West Herts Sports & Social Club in Watford, 2.0 start, maximum 40 entries.
LOL, not like you to be lost for words, Justin!
Personally I wouldn't even bother to input their actual game - just pick some really boring drawing opening like the London system and copy it up to however many moves the players made until the draw. If they have made zero effort to contribute anything worthwhile there is no point clogging up data...
Roger Lancaster . perpetual check< This term is not in the Laws of Chess. If it is not by repetition, it will always take many moves to demonstrate. Of course, if 5 fold occurrence has happened, if it happens a further 5 times, the arbiter obviously failed to be aware and the 5 extra moves are irre...
They didn't even have to claim a draw by repetition - although they could have done. The thinking behind this little charade was, presumably, that neither wished to claim a draw after threefold repetition as the chief arbiter might have deemed this as acquiescing in a draw - contrary to the tournam...
Touch-move claims are difficult to judge. In practice, arbiters usually don't rule in favour of the claim unless either both players agree on something, or an outside witness can say something. I'd be a bit cautious about this "outside witness" business as the most likely spectators watching the ga...
