International Arbiter Freyd Laurent, who serves as the Chief Arbiter for the Qatar Open 2023, addressed two notable incidents during the second round of the tournament.
The first incident revolved around Magnus Carlsen, who took to Twitter after losing his second-round match. He expressed his concerns about his opponent’s watch, which he found distracting. Carlsen also raised questions about the fair play checks in the tournament.
The second issue involved Vladimir Fedoseev, who left the tournament hall while in a losing position, without prior notification to the officials. His departure was accompanied by expressed dissatisfaction with the tournament’s arrangements.
