Pieces, Boards, Clocks, & Scoresheets:  Supplied

  • The supplied equipment is not available for analysis or skittles.
  • A MonRoi device is considered a scoresheet.  All scoresheets must be left on the playing table in full view at all times during the game. 
  • Please bring your own pen.
  • All other electronic devices--including, but not limited to: cell phones, PDAs, computers, calculators, MP3 players, cameras--as well as books and magazines--are banned from the playing room, adjacent hallways, and washrooms. Players may deposit such devices with tournament directors for safekeeping. 

No Spectators, Consultation

  • No spectators will be allowed in the tournament hall. 
  • Players are prohibited from communicating with other players, parents, and coaches in the playing area, hallways adjacent to the playing site, and the washrooms. The penalty for a first offence may be as severe as loss of the game.
  • Parents, accompanying adults, coaches, and non-competitor siblings are banned from the hallways and washrooms adjacent to the playing site, except to take photos during the first five minutes of play for each round. 




Pairings will be done using the FIDE-approved program Swiss-46.  FIDE pairings are a bit

different from CFC pairings, but Swiss-46 is famous for doing them correctly.  FIDE pairings

were also better designed for small sections.  Nonetheless, the Arbiter may change the pairings produced by Swiss-46, at his discretion.


Questions during the game If you have a question during the game, you may stop the clocks (by touching the Pause button) and raise your hand. A tournament official will then come to answer the question. Please do not try to settle differences through talking to your opponent.

  • Please shake hands before the game. And after.
  • Do not speak to your opponent during the game.
  • Touch move.
  • To begin the game, Black should press the button and then White moves. The clocks do not need to be handled except to push the button after your move.
  • You may bring your own food and drinks, but please do not eat at the board.
  • No noisy foods, such as chips. 
  • When the game is over, mark the result clearly on the scoresheet, sign both scoresheets, set up the pieces again, and leave the top copy of both scoresheets in the middle of the board. A tournament official will pick them up. You must then leave the playing hall.
