Oh My God! Chess rules can get really complex!

The FIDE Handbook covers all the laws of chess. However, there are often cases which are so complex that they are not so easy to foresee. Here’s an example from the World Rapid 2022 where Ehsan Ghaem Maghami was playing with the white pieces against Mustafokhuja Khusenkhojaev. It was a rook + bishop vs rook endgame and it went on for a long time. The entire hall was waiting for this game to end so that the next round pairings could come up. However, it was not to be. There was the very important 75-move rule that cropped up in this game, as well as the changing of points in the next round after the pairing is published. These are the kind of rules, which not many people are aware of. Check out the video and let us know your thoughts on the entire incident.

  2. There should be AI not human arbiter now who will monitor the games.

  3. I'm 3 seconds in and I'm betting the guy on the left is gonna complain about something.

  4. What's the point in the boards having chips in them if they aren't programmed to alert when a forced draw is available…

  5. I thought that if a player claims draw by 3x repitition, that if tgey are wrong it is a loss.
