RULES ON RAPID PLAY A.4
a. From the initial position, once ten moves have been completed by each player,
(1) No change can be made to the clock setting, unless the schedule of the event
would be adversely affected.
(2) No claim can be made regarding incorrect set‐up or orientation of the
chessboard. In case of incorrect king placement, castling is not allowed. In case
of incorrect rook placement, castling with this rook is not allowed.
b. An illegal move is completed once the player has pressed his clock. If the arbiter
observes this he shall declare the game lost by the player, provided the opponent has not made his next move. If the arbiter does not intervene, the opponent is entitled to claim a win, provided the opponent has not made his next move. 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 moves. If the opponent does not claim and the arbiter does not intervene, the illegal move shall stand and the game shall continue. Once the opponent has made his next move, an illegal move cannot be corrected unless this is agreed by the players without intervention of the arbiter.
c. To claim a win on time, the claimant must stop the chess clock and notify the
arbiter. For the claim to be successful, the claimant must have time remaining
on his own clock after the chess clock has been stopped. 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 moves.
If a player claims that his opponent overstepped the allotted time and he did not stop the clocks, and then his flag felt down before the arbiter fixed the result, the game shall be declared a draw.
d. If the arbiter observes both kings are in check, or a pawn on the rank furthest
from its starting position, he shall wait until the next move is completed. Then, if
the illegal position is still on the board, he shall declare the game drawn.
In Rapid play the arbiter has also to call a flag fall, if he observes it.
Explanation of tie-breaks
Direct Encounter- If all the tied players have met each other, the sum of points from these encounters is used. The player with the highest score is ranked number 1 and so on. If some but not all have played each other, the player with a score that could not be equaled by any other player (if all such games had been played) is ranked number 1 and so on.
The Buchholz System is the sum of the scores of each of the opponents of a player.
The Median Buchholz is the Buchholz reduced by the highest and the lowest scores of the opponents.
The Buchholz Cut 1 is the Buchholz score reduced by the lowest score of the opponents.
The Sonneborn‐Berger (S.B.) score is the sum of the scores of all opponents a player has
defeated+ half of the scores of all opponents he has drawn with.
For tie-break purposes all unplayed games in which players are indirectly involved (results by forfeit of opponents) are considered to have been drawn.
For tie-break purposes a player who has no opponent will be considered as having played against a virtual opponent who has the same number of points at the beginning of the round and who draws in all the following rounds. For the round itself the result by forfeit will be considered as a normal result.
Drawn games claimed: With his presence, the Arbiter decides.
1. Three times repetition of position.
2. 50 moves without pawn move or captured.
3. Obvious drawn position.
Article 12.9 Options available to the arbiter concerning penalties:
b. increasing the remaining time of the opponent,
c. reducing the remaining time of the offending player,
d. increasing the points scored in the game by the opponent to the maximum available for that game,
e. reducing the points scored in the game by the offending person,
d. declaring the game to be lost by the offending player (the arbiter shall also decide the opponent’s score),
g. a fine announced in advance
h. expulsion from the competition.
