The Laws of Chess have two parts: 1. Basic Rules of Play and 2. Competition Rules.
The English text [Laws of Chess] is the authentic version of the Laws of Chess (which were adopted at the 88th FIDE Congress at Goynuk, Antalya, Turkey) coming into force on 1 January 2018. In these Laws the words ‘he’, ‘him’, and ‘his’ shall be considered to include ‘she’ and ‘her’.
