    Question and Answer:



    1. Do you need to report the result of game? NO! We will collect your the result by watching all the games automatically. You should only play 1 game with your opponent! and that is what we count. Make sure that the result is correct in the standing. We will collect result as soon as your game finished. 


    2. I was winning, but then my internet went bad and my opponent claimed a win? What should I do? I am sorry that your internet was down. It can happen to anyone. If that happen, we only use the result from the game, so you lost the game. If your opponent is nice (hope your opponent does not claim a win on disconnected player), then he/she may just wait until you flagged. If your opponent is disconnected, please wait, but do not add minutes on your opponent because that will delay next round.


    3. What to do for next round? Same thing. You wait until pairing is up and start game with your opponent in the pairing.


    4. Any breaks between? We will have small break like 2-3 minutes each round to let tournament directors review the games and do the pairing.


    5. How to withdraw? Please tell tournament director that you withdraw before next pairing is up. We have chat for everyone, or you can directly message the TD.


    6. Is it USCF Rated Games? YES. Online rating only. USCF has different rating system. We will submit your games by the end of tournament to USCF and they will adjust your online raiting. Online rating only.


    7. How to make sure my opponent is not cheating? Honest! Every players need to be honest and not cheating. Cheating can be playing using engine, playing by someone else, or someone helping. The purpose of this tournament is to get better at chess and logical thinking in general. There is no money price, and it is not worth to cheat in chess.


    9. Any cheating punishments? Yes. Lichess has detection if someone cheating. If Lichess reports that someone is cheating, your games will be canceled and you may not be able to join our tournament anymore.
