Understanding the 
Laws of Chess
  

   The Laws of Chess are being changed (refined/modified) every two years or so. And of course, there is genuinely some confusion of what's correct and the  latest. With every website update, I will highlight a law or two that needs to be understood in tournament play. 

Case #1.

The following position arose in a rapid tournament in 2016. 
White's 'flag' fell (White had no more time on the clock). The opponent stopped the clock and summoned the arbiter to claim a win. If you are the arbiter, what is your decision? (Note: Black only has a Knight and King.)

Solution: 

FIDE handbook
Reference: A.4.3.
To claim a win on time, the claimant may 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 claimant cannot checkmate the player’s king by any possible series of legal moves.

   If Black can show a possible checkmate with the pieces remaining on the board, then Black wins on time. One possible checkmate is as follows: 

 

Do you have a question on the laws of chess? Please email me at geodat@yahoo.com, with your name, and I will reply you at some stage. If I feel it is relevant, I will post it on one of my website updates. Thank you. Arbiter Collin Madhavan.
