League and cup games that are broken off due to the end of the game time are draws, unless they are dismissed as won in favour of a player. The procedure described in the following also applies to league games that are abandoned due to a player's permanent absence through no fault of his own.
A abondation will only be made at the request of a player claiming the win. The tournament director will inform him of this in the event of the abandonment. The player has until the 7th day after this notification the possibility to make the request, to justify it and to send it to the tournament manager. The application must contain the complete PGN notation, the winning application and its justification.
The tournament director informs the opponent that a win application has been received. The opponent can then send a statement to the tournament director by the 3rd day, if he has not submitted a winning application himself.
The tournament director will immediately check incoming requests and comments for completeness. In the case of applications and comments that do not comply with the above, he shall work towards a rectification if the rectification is to be expected within the current deadlines. In the case of applications which do not comply with the above at the end of the deadlines, the tournament manager will reject the winning application.
Adequate requests lead to a win of the lot if 2 competitors in the procedure described below come to the conclusion that the applicant would probably have won the lot if the lot had not been aborted. Opposing winning claims of both players in the same game will be dealt with together.
If the tournament director has received 2 formal requests for a win or 1 formal request for a win for a match and the opponent's statement or if the opponent does not submit a statement, the tournament leader will remove the PGN headers and other references to the player's person from the documents and forward them to the responsible 1st departee.
On the basis of the documents, the first examiner shall assess whether or not the application is successful after his examination and shall give reasons for his examination. He shall then forward the documents, his copy and the reasons for his copy to the second responsible copyist.
The 2nd abbreviation checks the abbreviation of the 1st abbreviation on the basis of the statement of reasons and the documents. He may concur with the deduction of the first deduction without further explanation or with a different explanation and return the documents to the tournament director. He may discard a deduction from the first deduction and return the documents to the tournament director stating the reasons for the failure of the application for a win. If, contrary to the deduction of the first deduction, he comes to the conclusion that the winning application should be granted, he shall submit the documents to the first deduction, explaining his reasons for the deduction. The first abbreviation thereby moves into the position of a second abbreviation. (He may concur with the copy of the second copy without further explanation or with a different explanation and forward the documents to the tournament director. He may discard a reduction in the winnings of the 2nd winner and return the documents to the tournament director stating the reasons for the failure of the application for a win.
The tournament leader will determine the result of the abatement procedure and will inform the players.
Time-limits run in the procedure after a batch has been terminated, even during a time-out, a holiday or an absence period. In such cases, the tournament director may extend the time limit, as long as the purpose of the abatement is not in danger.
§ 18 of the Game and Tournament Rules (challenge at revision) does not apply in the procedure after a game is abandoned.
