ASEAN-CHESS at SEA GAMES : MCF not sending a player accept for Blindfold Individual Rapid chess (Men)

ASEAN-Chess - Pieces position

The new chess variant namely ASEAN-Chess was born as the combination of Myanmar Traditional Chess, Thai Traditional Chess (Mak Rute) and Cambodia Traditional Chess with some added and amended rules.


The Laws of ASEAN-Chess cover over-the-board play.
The English text is the authentic version of the Laws of ASEAN-Chess, which was adopted at the ASEAN-Chess Council at Bangkok, Thailand on March 14, 2011 coming into force on the same date.

In these Laws the words 'he', 'him' and 'his' include 'she' and 'her'.


The Laws of ASEAN-Chess cannot cover all possible situations that may arise during a game, nor can they regulate all administrative questions. Where cases are not precisely regulated by an Article of the Laws, it should be possible to reach a correct decision by studying analogous situations, which are discussed in the Laws. The Laws assume that arbiters have the necessary competence, sound judgement and absolute objectivity. Too detailed a rule might deprive the arbiter of his freedom of judgement and thus prevent him from finding the solution to a problem dictated by fairness, logic and special factors.

ASEAN Chess Confederation appeals to all chess players and federations to accept this view.
A member federation is free to introduce more detailed rules provided they:

a. do not conflict in any way with the official Laws of ASEAN-Chess

b. are limited to the territory of the federation in question; and

are not valid for any ASEAN match, championship or qualifying event..etc.

In case of any dispute or problems arising during a game, the chief arbiter shall make the final decision according to the FIDE Laws of Chess.
