Please note, by entering the competition, you are agreeing to these conditions

Internet chess provider anti-cheating detection will be in place, with provider sanctions and rights of appeal as set out in the provider’s terms and conditions; in the event that a player’s account has been marked or closed by the provider for using computer assistance any appeal must be made to the provider.

In addition we will be screening the PGNs of the games using the FIDE Screening tool run by Professor Ken Regan. We will also have a member of the FIDE Fair Play Commission overseeing the Anti Cheating measures.

A player whose account on the provider’s website has been marked or closed for using computer assistance, or has been picked up in the FIDE screen, will have their results set as a loss and removed from the tournament. If the FIDE screen indicates that the cheating occurred in the event, a report will be sent to the Scottish Anti-Cheating Committee who will make a determination as to any further punishment as required.

Please note, as we are using a provider, if you use computer assistance in other games, your account could be banned mid tournament even although you have not been using computer assistance for the tournament!

Players have the right to appeal. For a removal from a tournament due to FIDE screen, it would be to the Anti Cheating Committee. For a subsequent punishment from the Anti Cheating Committee, it would be to the Management Board.
