Other Rules for Online Events

"FAIR PLAY" Measures

All games played in US CHESS-rated tournaments will be analyzed using ICC's sophisticated anti-cheating tools. Such analysis will include, but not be limited to, comparing moves played to the recommendations of various engines. Players suspected of violating the Fair Play rules may: 1) have their results and any prize eligibility canceled 2) be banned from future play on ICC, 3) be banned from future events both online and over the board, and 4) be reported to the US CHESS Ethics Committee, leading to possible suspension of US CHESS membership.
