Half point byes will be granted if requested before the round draw.

It is optional to record the moves.

If a player’s flag falls they will have lost on time unless their opponent has insufficient material to mate, in which case the match will be a draw.

If a player has less than 2 minutes left on their clock they may claim a draw. The position should be noted and agreed by both players. An adjudicator will either turn down or accept the draw claim.

If a player makes an illegal move and presses the clock they will forfeit the game if their opponent claims before making a move.

Results will be sent to Chess Scotland for grading (Allegro grades).
