Saxmundham Rules!

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of giving a talk to ten members of the Saxmundham Chess Club on the Laws of Chess.

Topics covered included:   Actions that bring the game into disrepute; opponents trying to run you out of time; Interference by third parties; noisy venues; time scrambles; three-fold repetition; recording the moves.   Also covered were changes in the rules that will come into effect in July 2014, in time for the next season.

After the talk, members took part in a six-round Blitz tournament which was won by top seed Malcolm Lightfoot.

If any other Suffolk club would like a talk on the rules, let me know!
