The rules are simple enough: there is no timetable, and no deadlines.
You just turn up at the Cardiff Chess Club, find an opponent in the same section,
and play him! If you cannot find an opponent, just tell me (John Trevelyan, or
anybody else on the committee) and say that you cannot find an opponent. You will
be given an "Appearance Point".
At the end of the season, any game that is
not completed (including unfinished adjournments) will be awarded to the player
with the higher number of "Appearance Points".
Unless otherwise stated, the FIDE laws of
chess shall apply.
There is, as yet, no penalty if a mobile phone
rings during a game.
Tie splitting: Ties (except for the
championship itself) shall be resolved by examining the previous season's
results: If two or more players achieve identical scores, their finishing
order will be the same as it was in the previous season.
