Flag falls when reached 34 move quickplay finish
A move is “made” when the hand has quitted the piece being moved. In competition, a move is “completed” when the player’s clock has been stopped after the move is made.

If the player’s flag falls before the move is completed, the player loses on time if he has not completed the required number of moves. However, if the move has been “made” before flagfall, there is no loss on time if that move ends the game, eg by mate, creating a position which the opponent could not legally win, etc.

The flagfall can be pointed out until the opponent has played another move and pressed the clock. Thereafter the evidence would be destroyed.
