Originally posted by TyrannosauruschexOk, so we will be playing 10mins per person, should have clarified that!
As far as I know, you reset the position to before the illegal move was played and restart from that point - with 5 minutes removed from the clock of the illegal mover and added onto the legitimate victim ( although this time rule may have been changed now - it definately does not apply if the clocks have less then 5 minutes remaining).
If the ...[text shortened]... lly he could have won... needless to say, I made a hasty retreat before he could try and appeal.
Originally posted by TyrannosauruschexGood call. Cheers
Well 10 mins a game is quite fast, almost blitz speed really, so it would be more difficult to have any complicated rules requiring an arbiter and might be easier to just rule that illegal moves lose.
If you want things to be a little more friendly (I have seen people get VERY angry about losing a game due to some sneaky long range check which ...[text shortened]... warning, second adds 2 minutes to the clock, third one loses the game - that is a fairer system.
Originally posted by SchumiSo if you don't call it straight away and play moves on, what if you mate next move using the illegal move etc etc... would you move play back to the last legal position or how would it work... i'm confused and a little concerned that the people who will be playing may be a little inebriated and not spot stuff.
The FIDE rules say that an illegal move loses the game in blitz but if you don't call it straight away you lose the chance to claim.
If the competition is just for fun, I'd say a warning or a 1 minute penalty on the clock for the first offence would be fine.
Originally posted by cadwahReminds me of a member of my local club who stopped going. When asked why he said that he had lost his job and could not afford to have a beer(clubnight is held in a bar). It was pointed out to him that you dont have to have a drink. Disgusted he said that it was against his religion to go into a bar and not drink :-)
but I really don't want to referee all night, it's a pub... I want to get drunk.
