My understanding of the rule is the same as Big_Uggy. When I played as a junior in the 90s this rule was enforced in tournaments and matches. The reason given was always that it was to ensure that you'd completed your move before hitting the clock. Time scrambles were much more fun back in the day as it was really hard to tell precisely how much time you had left on the old analogue clocks!

No jest! I was suggesting that the reason for the one-hand rule is because if you're using a clock, you have to make the move then operate the clock with the same hand - otherwise it would be impossible in a time scramble to see whether the move had been made before or after the move. However, I suppose it's much easier to cheat by altering piece positions if you have both hands over the board. In both cases the rule seems to me to be a lot less daft than it sounds at first glance.




Looking at your average speed chess game this does actually make a lot of sense. I did find one video on youtube where a guy was using both hands but you would likely just have to put that down to either players or arbitrators not knowing the rules properly. The other thing that crossed my mind is that for a right handed player in speed chess its easier to hit the clock with white (black for a left hander is the same of course)

Hi Big_Uggy good to read a message from a new contributor, not sure if you are jesting or not but please refer to my introductory thread.

I had always assumed the one-hand move related to the operation of the clock. Am I wrong?

Seems even the official adjudicators are similarly unperturbed. Maybe I should use the word relaxed but prefer an air of sophistication.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š

Love the picture, cute, Ahh!!!

Feeling Armenia shouldn't be alone with the curriculum specialisation.

The up and coming young players appear not to worry about it
