I am planning to discuss various FIDE rules in future posts on this website. I know that some players are unaware or uncertain of some rules, so this will be an attempt to provide advice on those that are frequently misunderstood.
If anyone reading this would like to suggest a rule that you would like to see discussed, please let me know. I am considering the following, but would be pleased to hear of any more about which you would appreciate clarification:
7.4 – illegal moves
8.1 – recording moves and draw offers
9.1 – offering a draw
10.2 – the ‘two-minute’ rule
13.4 – possible penalties for rule infringements
13.7 – conduct of spectators (and 12.5)
