Other Tournament Rules
The tournament will be held on the lichess
server and will be governed by their own conditions, which are available here.
When playing you are not allowed to use
assistance from any other person, book or device.
Anybody who is flagged by lichess as being in
breach of lichess’ terms will be removed from the tournament and will not be
eligible for any prize. The organizers
have no say in how lichess conduct their business, and if any player has any
complaint it must be addressed to lichess and not to the organizers.
Unfortunately there is nothing that we can do
if anybody loses a game due to internet failure or mouse-slips. Please note that take-backs are not allowed.
