It seems that most of the work of the FIDE Rules and Tournament Regulations Commission meeting was about removing rules, rather than fixing them. Having dispensed with Quickplay finishes on day 1, the RTRC Meeting took the axe to rapidplay rules yesterday. Specifically Rapidplay rules and Blitz rules are much more closely aligned. In games where there is not adequate supervision, illegal moves now lose, just as in Blitz. Also the clause stating 'The arbiter shall refrain from signalling a flag fall' has been removed from both Rapidplay and Blitz, meaning that arbiters can now flag players in Blitz. Objections to this change sensibly noted that results of games may now depend upon whether an arbiter is wandering past your board or not. It was also pointed out that the adoption of this rule may simply result in arbiters not going near any games during a blitz tournament, only involving themselves when requested to by a player (presumably by shouting or waving some sort of flag).
