About this title


Ever been confused by the division of a tournament prize fund? Wonder how to fix an incorrectly set clock? How can players file a complaint? Can someone explain official and unofficial ratings? What’s the secret to dealing with chess lawyers? Is there a trick tournaments directors can use to start games on time? How do organizers learn to construct prize funds, rent space, hire staff, and advertise? Puzzled by scholastic chess tournaments? Get the Just Law scoop on the most popular chess tournament questions from players, tournament directors and organizers. In the book’s Q&A format, Tim Just guides you through a wide range of tournament topics, including details about notation, draws, byes, clocks, prizes, prize funds, ratings, making claims, playing sites, time controls, pairings, tournament management, tournament creation, scholastic chess mysteries, and even more. Just Law’s bonus material includes a list of rulebook Successful Player Habits and the Just Law Jargon list of common US Chess terms. Tim’s expert replies come from his stints as the US Chess rulebook editor for both the 5th and 6th editions. Then there are his many years as a National Tournament Director, tournament organizer, US Chess Delegate, and member of both the US Chess rules committee plus the US Chess tournament director certification committee.
