Rule 10b of the ICCF server playing rules states " In case the tablebase shows a win that supersedes the 50 moves rule, the win will be awarded.".
The independent home for discussions on the English Chess scene.
To be precise (which perhaps I should have been yesterday) this only applies to 6-man (or of course fewer) positions that are resolvable by the Convekta tablebase mentioned in the ICCF rules.Kevin Thurlow wrote:Rule 10b of the ICCF server playing rules states " In case the tablebase shows a win that supersedes the 50 moves rule, the win will be awarded.".
So while 7 men remain on the board in ICCF, the 50-move rule still applies.In a position that is not solvable by the certified ICCF tablebase, the 50 move rule as
described by FIDE Laws of Chess is valid even in case such a solvable position will
arise immediately after the 50th move. In case the solvable won position arises, and
is claimed, before draw according to 50 move rule, the win will be awarded.
