Zero Tolerance Rule

Following representation by the Association of Chess Professionals, the Presidential Board in Sofia confirmed their previous decision that Organisers of events where the zero tolerance rule was in operation should be obliged to provide participants with the best conditions in order that they can respect the rule.

For events with more than 30 participants, a large digital countdown clock must be installed in the playing hall. For events with less than 30 players an announcement by microphone must be made 5 minutes before the game is due to start and again one minute before the start of the game.
