The One Minute Conferring Rule...
There seems to be a bit of confusion about the new rule in the pairs, to clear it up...
Pairs are only allowed to confer for one minute on their visit to the table. The referee can time this, and must inform the pair that their one minute is over, the pair must then stop conferring and the player must continue with his/her visit. Like before there is no conferring between shots on each visit.The referee does not need to time every shot, just the conferring.
