What if your opponent died during a chess match? (OTB Tournament)

Call Arbiter. He knows what to do.

Raise my hand, calling an arbiter.

But my question is that how would they die without any reason?

Death comes anytime.

Now I realized what you mean. Shout "I didn't kill him!"

You’re probably either going to get arrested or your face on a wanted poster.

It has happened, players have died at the chess board, usually from a heart attack.
You get the win.

The Survivor wins. Simple logic. The dead player's clock would flagged down if game isn't stopped.

I would claim a win but would be "big enough" not to require his rating to go down or mine to go up...

Don't do anything until his clock runs down and he flags. Then call arbiter after you've won.

On July 23, 1933, the Dutch chess master Adolf George Olland died at age 66 of a heart attack while playing white against Hamming in the 1933 Dutch chess championship at The Hague.

Olland played his 25th move, collapsed, his head fell on the chessboard and the pieces rolled off the table.

The Dead Man’s Defense has a long checkered history in correspondence play. When my opponent is dragging things out, I let them know that I am healthy and that only go into rough neighbourhoods fully armed.
