Adjudication is an independent decision (usually by a strong, impartial chess player) as to whether an unfinished game should be scored as draw or a win for one of the players on best play by both players. It may be used by a tournament director for pairing purposes. It may be used to give a result of a game when there is not enough time to complete the game. Some correspondence games have a time limit for the event. Each player may submit the game for adjudication when that time limit is up.
