Changed: 5c5,9
2. to play the advantage: in a situation where players are evenly matched but a choice must be made about who may have the most beneficial option, the referee may play the advantage to a particular player. These rulings are usually on circumstances which are unlikely to have a lasting effect on the status of the game, but where some arbitrary decision must be made. In the absence of a referee, a coin toss will suffice.
