FIDE Arbiters’ Magazine No 5

Dear friends,

The FIDE Arbiters’ Commission has the pleasure to publish online the fifth issue of the Arbiters’ Magazine. You can find it here.

We continue our effort to provide Arbiters all over the world with necessary knowledge and information coming from real incidents that happened during recent tournaments and thus making Arbiters better in exercising their duties. In this issue we are pleased to cooperate with the FIDE Rules Commission and the FIDE Qualification Commission.

We would like to thank very much IA Ashot Vardapetyan and IA Tomasz Delega, Chairman and Secretary respectively of the FIDE Rules Commission and IA Werner Stubenvoll, Chairman of the FIDE Qualification Commission, for their contribution and their inputs.

Of course many thanks belong to the Secretary of the FIDE Arbiters’ Commission IA Aris Marghetis, who was responsible for this 5th issue of the Arbiters’ Magazine, as he was for all the previous issues.

We would like again to invite the Arbiters, the players, the Officials and all chess people to send us their comments, opinions, ideas, and cases that have come to their knowledge and are worth publishing in the Arbiters’ Magazine.

Takis Nikolopoulos
