6th seed Paquito 'Pax' Suringa, Jr. was informed by NM, FI, Asst. Chief Arbiter of 2015 Palau National Chess Championship Roberto Hernandez, that he should not write his move first before making a move. He said that if he would erase it, it will be cheating like what Roberto has told to the IA in 2014 World Chess Olympiad in Tromso, Norway, when Palau is playing Guyana in the 11th and final round of the event. Guyana's board 1 player was informed that if he would erase what he has writer prior to making a move, it would be cheating and it might cause him that game. The hardheaded Pax answer is, "But I'm very sure that it would be my move." Roberto answered back that it's possible during the early days but not in today's play.
He also stop writing moves when he still have more than an hour left in his clock. Roberto informed him that if he was still behind in writing his moves, he can't offer a draw.
                            The position above is where he move the knight on f3 to d5. He wrote if first before making the move.
