The rule "Adjust" (or j'adoube) is a chess rule that is implicated in most chess tournaments. It states that any player may touch a piece and not move it (see [[touchmove) in order to adjust it on its square. You must, however, say the word immediately and without delay. If you do not say it quickly enough, your opponent may call a tournament director to force you to move the piece you touched.
