BASIC CHESS ETIQUETTE AND GAMEPLAY

 

AT MEETINGS

● Always greet and welcome new players so that they feel comfortable.

          Ask them if they want to play a game.

● At all times be respectful and considerate of the other chess club members and the game of chess with both your actions and voice

● ALWAYS TALK IN QUIET TONES AND A VERY LOW VOLUME

          Respect the game and be respectful of other players, even when you’re not playing.

          Chess is a game of quiet focus and concentration. It’s good sportsmanship and perfectly acceptable to remind others.

● When an experienced player plays a beginner, it is considered good sportsmanship to help the new player by pointing out better moves and letting them take their moves back. Teach them how to beat you.

● Juniors, keep your hands to yourself. This is not a time for running around, picking on, or poking at other players.

● Always leave the chess room as neat, or neater, than you found it.

 

ALL OTB DISPUTES ARE ADDRESSED BY TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR. PLAYERS RAISE HAND TO SUMMON TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR.

 

DURING GAMEPLAY

● SHAKE HANDS at the start and end of each game (sportsmanship)

● RESET YOUR BOARD at the end of your play

NEVER comment on another game in progress, it distracts the other players and is considered to be rude behavior (this is called “kibbitzing”).

● DISPUTES of any kind stop the clock raise your hand and wait for help

● Never touch your opponent's piece unless taking it off the board.

En Passant RULE

     ○ When a pawn moves two squares on one turn, the very next move an adjacent pawn may capture that pawn as if it had only moved one square.

Touch Move RULE

     ○ If a player having the move touches their piece on the board, they MUST move or capture unless it is an illegal move.

     ○ If a player needs to adjust a piece, first say "adjust"

     ○ If a player removes their hand from a piece they moved, they can NOT move it to a different location unless it is an illegal move. (NO “do-over”)

● If you disagree with what your opponent has done and believe the player has made an illegal move, stop the clock raise your hand, and wait for help

● Do NOT knock over pieces before you take them. This is considered rude behavior.

● You do not have to say "check".

● NEVER gloat over a victory or have a temper tantrum over a defeat (even if you're just mad at yourself).

● If you make a mistake or you see someone else make a mistake do not make a sound. It might be that the opponent will not notice the mistake if all remains quiet.
