All Chess games are to begin and end with a respectful handshake, regardless of the result of the game!
Do not ‘bang’ the clock or pieces, be polite to your opponent as well as fellow competitors.
In the event of a dispute, pause the clock and call the Tournament Director. The TDs use Official USCF Tournament rules. All TD decisions are final.
All touch move and touch take rules apply.
No talking while games are in progress.
When the game has finished, reset the pieces, turn the clock off, and quietly exit the playing hall.
Please mark your results after the game, regardless if you won, lost or drew the game.
