In Response To: Make All ABT Tourneys Legal Moves? (Taper_Mike)
6.1. Illegal Moves
Unless the Director states differently and publishes such in advance, Legal Moves shall be enforced. After the conclusion of a turn, and before the dice are next tossed opponent's next play is completed, if either player notices that the just completed move is inconsistent with the dice (an illegal move), the dice shall be replaced on the surface with the actual roll showing, the checkers replaced to their position before the illegal move and the player must replay his turn. If the opponent had rolled before the illegal move is discovered, his roll is withdrawn and he re-rolls after the play is corrected. If the illegal move isn't noticed until after the subsequent dice roll play is completed, the play stands as made. Illegal moves include leaving or placing checkers on the bar or off the board that should not have been left or moved there, not picking up a checker that had to have been hit in order to move legally, or moving checkers to the wrong points. Note that only the players or a tournament official may point out an illegal move — spectators are required to remain silent unless asked by both players to assist. Note also that in the spirit of fair play, both players are ethically obligated to point out any illegal plays made by either player.
