Welcome to the 2021 Colorado Scholastic Online Championship!

This tournament only affects Tornelo ratings and nonother.

This tournament is NOT a Colorado State Chess Association (CSCA) event. It is being co-run by Chessmates & Summit School of Chess. 20% of the proceeds from this tournament will be directly donated to the CSCA.

The purpose of this tournament is to provide an opportunity for all our Colorado scholastic players (and ANY scholastic players from ANY state) who didn't get to play in their regular annual state tournament or would be happy to play in this event.

IF YOU ARE PLAYING FOR THE FIRST TIME PLEASE USE YOUR CURRENT USCF OR ELO WHEN FILLING OUT YOUR PROFILE.

You will need to create an account on Tornelo, register, and pay for the tournament directly on this website/lobby.

Playing in this tournament is VERY simple. In addition to the Zoom link you can find here in the lobby - we will also send an email prior to the tournament with Zoom details and additional instructions.

This event will be live-streamed on Twitch with interviews and game review on https://www.twitch.tv/nmjessecohen

What you need for the tournament: 1) A room where only the participant will occupy 2) A webcam

Cheat Detection/Prevention 1) All participants must be on Zoom with the 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. We 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.

Fair Play: 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!
