ADJOURNMENT look up translate image
An unfinished game may be adjourned and continued at a later time/date. The player to make the next move on the board is required to write the next move on a piece of paper which is given to the referee. This is called a sealed move. When the game recommences this move must be the next move played on the chessboard. The adjournment rule was first introduced in 1878 in Paris.
