This is an online event.  Players will provide their own computer with an internet connection that is capable of playing chess on ICC.  Players must also have a webcam or other video camera.  Because of the video requirement, we ask students to play on a desktop or laptop computer rather than a phone, tablet, or other device -- such devices will not be supported for this event.

All players will be required to join a zoom meeting with a video camera showing their face and remain in attendance with video at all times while playing.  Tournament staff will be available the day before the event from 5-7:30 p.m. to assist players who want to test their equipment.

Players who do not attend the player's meeting lose the opportunity to test their equipment before the day of the event.

We will be running the event in accordance with the new online play rules listed in Chapter 10 of the Official Rules of Chess.  You can find those rules here: https://new.uschess.org/sites/default/files/media/documents/us-chess-rule-book-online-only-edition-chapter-10-9-1-20.pdf
