US Chess's TD Show Episode 13: The 50-Move Rule

This week's “The TD Show” topic will be "The 50-Move Rule" and will air at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific on Thursday, July 23 on the US Chess Twitch channel at

The show will be hosted by NTD Chris Bird and this week’s guest will be NTD Mike Regan. We will provide an overview of the 50-move rule, what it means, when and how players make claims and best practices for handling such claims as a TD. 

For folks tuning in live, Twitch will provide some interaction between the show and the audience, allowing you to ask questions in real-time and we’ll also finish each episode with some light-hearted fun in the form of trivia based on the topic discussed. However, if you cannot tune in live, each episode will be archived in the TD Videos playlist at the US Chess YouTube Channel.
