Yes, but arbiters may not always realise that the players have messed things up before they get there. Hence the instruction which you quote in your first sentence.Roger de Coverly wrote:At previous championships, players were sometimes required to leave the boards as they were, whether on a live board or not.
But isn't correctly recording results, even on computers, one of the key arbiter skills?
Debate directly related to English Chess Federation matters.
Yes back on here too.David Sedgwick wrote:I had the same problem, but I'm now getting them.Carl Hibbard wrote:Live games failing for me with operation timeout on the live component, anyone else?
It was a relatively routine Benoni/Kings Indian where White punted e5 at move 21. Mark then unleashed a counter-play idea with Bxa4. Count the pieces and pawns when the dust settles and I imagine that Black will have one extra pawn and level pieces. But there are tactical blows and counter blows before they get there. With Mark having nearly an hour more on the clock, that may well be a point in his favour.Christopher Kreuzer wrote:What on Earth is going on in Ward-Hebden on board 3? (Currently at move 27)
I was wondering if 29.Qxg6+ was possible, and Ward has played it! I thought White was going to be a piece up after the dust settles, Roger? I don't see lines where Hebden would have got both pieces back. But this line looks winning for Ward as well. (EDIT: And 32.Nf5 and/or Nce4 looks terminal)
See Keith is back in the country winning games in the British! I am not sure about Ward-Hebden - I couldn't see how the tactics worked for Black but I wasn't running an engine and it might have been one move that made the difference.
For Ward-Hebden? I assume the draw result showing on the live boards display is wrong. Black is forced to play Qc5+ and Qf8 to avoid being mated, but Ne4 (with Ng5+ and Nh6+ unstoppable) looks a crushing follow-up.

Doesn't Black simply play Qd2, then after White plays Qxa6 Black can play Qe1+ and wins the f2 pawn or the a5 pawn, depending on White's reply. Not sure if White can avoid a perpetual after f2 falls.John Moore wrote:Ray Sayers wrote:Nick Pert can play 31. Qb8+ Kh7, 32. Qb1+ g6, 33. Qf1?
Edit: I must have missed something; Nick Played 31. Qb6
Ray I thought that too. I don't think that you missed anything
