Chess Rules & Regulations

  • Tournament (USCF Blit rules) will be in Swiss format which features a set number of rounds of competition. Number of rounds will be based on total number of entries received for Chess event. Expect to play a minimum of 2 rounds and a maximum of six rounds. Here is a link to USCF blitz rules (http:// www.uschess.org/docs/gov/reports/BlitzRulesChanges.pdf):.
  • First round of pairings will be determined based on the player’s age..
  • Every won game will fetch 2 point, lost game will fetch 0 point, and a draw game (by threefold repetition or by stalemate or by mutual agreement or by claiming insufficient material to win or by fifty-move rule or) will fetch 1 point each player..
  • This is a G/5 sudden death game which means that each player will get 5 minutes per game. Max length of each game hence is 10 minutes..
  • Touch & Move Rule will be observed; however it is the player(s) responsibility to take care of themselves..
  • Each player must press the clock with the same hand that moves the pieces, use one hand to both to move the pieces and to press the clock. First violation will be a warning and second violation will result in loss of game. However, tournament directors will not watch out for these violations. The players have to watch out and some witness (could be tournament directors also) has to be there so that we can enforce this rule..
  • If the King is in check and an illegal move is made (and the move is completed by pressing the clock) then opponent can take the King and can claim win. A player who moves his king adjacent to the opponent’s king and then attempts to claim a win under this rule based on the opponent’s failure to notice the check shall lose the game (A King can’t give check to another King).
  • If a player touches one piece, then moves another piece; and presses the clock, the opponent may press the player’s clock to force the player to move the piece touched..
  • A player who has played an illegal move (and not completed) must retract it and make a legal move with the same piece prior to pressing the clock. If no legal move exists with that piece, then he may make any other legal move with a different piece. Illegal moves unnoticed by the both players cannot be corrected afterwards. An illegal move is completed when the player presses the clock and stays unnoticed until another 5 seconds or opponent touches his own piece (to start his move). Opponent must first PAUSE the clocks, inform the player about his illegal move, and then once agreed upon mutually, start timer of the player’s clock who played illegal move. In other words, If an illegal position is created or an illegal move made without the opponent making a claim, the position stands and a claim not allowed when the opponent has determined a next move, or 5 seconds have passed, whichever is earlier..
  • An illegal move doesn’t negate a player’s right to claim on time, provided it is made prior to the opponent’s claim of an illegal move. If the claims are simultaneous, the player who made the illegal move loses..
  • Chess boards, sets will be available, however, participants might want to bring their own boards/ sets. However, not all chessboards are eligible to be used for tournament. Min square length for an eligible chess board is 2.25 inch..
  • Please bring your mobile phone/tablets loaded with chess clock app. For android systems you can use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Hefestus.ChessClock.Free and for apple systems you can use https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/chess-clock-free/id858039162?mt=8.
  • There will be very minimal gap between the rounds and each round lasts for only 10 minutes, so don’t leave the tournament area or come back in time before the next round starts so that you don’t lose time on the clock. Absence of any player during any round will be considered as loss of game and the opponent will get a point automatically..
  • The decision of the tournament director is final..
  • Spectators will be allowed to roam around the area for viewing of the game(s), however, in case of there is a huge crowd gathering around specific areas, then TD might ask you to move elsewhere..
