IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION 

 

Before registering for the Glen Rock Quads or Online Super Saturday Quads OR , you must have a current USCF membership. If you have gotten a membership in the past but it has expired, please renew it before playing. If you have never been a United States Chess Federation member before, please sign up here. If you are not sure about how to sign up or have any questions about the membership, email: icaonlinetournaments@gmail.com.

IMPORTANT: Two Camera Rule is strictly enforced For USCF Players Rated  > 1000

Tournament Details:

The entry fee is $27, and the prize for 1st place in each section is $60. We will create sections based on USCF classical ratings, aiming for four players in every section. We reserve the right to create larger sections in an effort to create better rating distributions, and there will be additional prizes awarded accordingly.

Registration will close at exactly 11:59 pm ET on the Friday before the tournament, and the tournament will begin at exactly 1:30 pm ET on Saturday. Once registration is over, you will be sent a link that will allow you to join a www.chess.com club corresponding to your section.

You will join the tournament that will be running in this club. Pairing will be provided here and updated for each round at the conclusion of the previous round. Sections with an average rating under 1,000 will play G/30;d5, and sections with an average rating of 1,000 or more will play G/45;d5.

 

All games will be observed and all communication during the tournament will be accomplished via Zoom (the link for which will be sent along with your section). Please download it before signing up for the tournament. In addition to Zoom, we will use chess.com’s cutting-edge anti-cheat protocols to ensure fair play during the tournaments.

Prizes will be paid several days after the conclusion of the event (this is the amount of time it takes for chess.com to review all of the games to ensure fair play rules were observed).

ICA's No Cheating Policy.png

IMPORTANT - TWO CAMERA RULE!

Due to recent cheating accusations that have been plaguing not only our VIRTUAL events, but virtual events all across the chess world, we will be following official recommendations to institute a 2-camera setup for our higher-rated players effective immediately (This rule will apply to all sections > 1000). What this change entails is that all players in our Over 1000 average sections will be required to set up 2 cameras during their games. It is unfortunate we need to take such measures and we realize this may be difficult for some players to abide by. Cheating is something we take very seriously and with recent events, such measures have become necessary. Please let us know if you have any questions and be aware that this rule will be enforced strictly. If you cannot conform to this setup, you will not be able to play!

 

With our new two camera rule, following are instructions on how your cameras should be set up. The two cameras must provide:

1. A full view of your face

2. A full view of your entire computer screen

 

This can be done with any device! We would recommend using your computer web camera for your face recording (as most of you are doing already) and setting up a phone or tablet on the side pointe at your screen. Here's how the cameras should be set up to record:

NOTE:

  • The Director may on occasion require that Zoom be temporarily adjusted to reveal parts of the room not otherwise displayed.  

  • A player may not leave for a bathroom break while on move (on opponents turn, notify the director and they will give you permission to go!).

  • Players are warned that improvement of play slightly after a bathroom break is considered highly suspicious and, depending on other factors, could lead to a player being forfeited or banned. 

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and compliance.
