Due to the haphazard use of the Foul and a Miss rule during the 22 rounds of the competition , the NDBSA committee has decided on a definitive method of application of the rule for the finals
At the toss of the coin for each pairing , the marker shall ask the two players if they wish the Foul and a Miss Rule to apply in their match.
If either or both players say YES , the Foul and a Miss Rule SHALL apply to their match .
If both players say NO than the Foul and a Miss Rule will not apply to their match
The Marker’s ruling on whether a fair attempt has been made is final
Good luck in the Finals
