Product Description

Synopsis

"For me and many arbiters, Stewart Reuben's book is our bible." Casto Abundo, Rating Administrator, Elista FIDE Office. This third edition, as well as updated comprehensive and practical information on all aspects of running tournaments, also contains the new FIDE (World Chess Federation) Official Laws of Chess. These Laws were revised at the Chess Olympiad in Calvia, with changes taking effect from July 2005. Several new chapters have been added on inputting games, websites, junior chess and peripheral events. The FIDE Title Regulations have been fully revised since the last edition, substantially due to the efforts of Stewart Reuben. What is provided here are the necessary rules, which will enable an organiser or arbiter to run a title norm event. Various Swiss Pairing Systems are compared critically. Information given provides what is practically a blue-print to enable an organiser to put together a tournament. Stewart Reuben is internationally recognised as one of the world's foremost chess organisers and arbiters. He is currently Chairman of the FIDE Organizers Committee; Secretary of the Rules and Tournament Regulations Committee, member of the Title and Ratings Committee and of the Qualification Commission. He is also past Chairman of the British Chess Federation. He has officiated at and/or organised numerous top-level events, including the World Championship. He holds three FIDE titles: Arbiter, Organizer and Candidate Master.
