1) All participants must be on Zoom with video turned on at all times. This will allow us to ensure that each participant is actually playing as themselves and not receiving advice from other people.
2) The Tornelo website has an automatic cheating detection program built in that will scan every game played. I will review this information every tournament prior to the distribution of prizes.
3) The number one reason players cheat is anonymity. The wonderful thing about Tornelo is that all participants are listed by their actual names and not aliases. Furthermore, this is a tight nit community of players. We know each other.
4) Anyone caught cheating will be banned from Summit School of Chess Tournaments for a minimum of one year (both online & in-person) and not receive prize monies.
Fair Play: (taken from the chess.com website)
- No chess programs or engines (e.g. Chessmaster, Fritz, Komodo, Houdini, Stockfish, Chessbase with any active UCI engine, etc.) can be used to analyze positions in ongoing games at any time.
- No outside assistance OF ANY KIND is permitted.
- Fixing game results by arranging games, playing with multiple accounts, or losing intentionally is also against the rules.
- Do not let anyone else play on your account! This is strictly against the rules!
