POLICY ON CHEATING

We have agreed that in order to promote fair play and safeguard against any form of cheating in chess tourneys, the following rules must strictly be adhered to.

  • No chess programs or engines (e.g. Chessmaster, Fritz, Komodo, Houdini, Stockfish, Chessbase with any active UCI engine, etc.) can be used to analyze positions in ongoing games at any time.
  • While your game is ongoing, no outside assistance OF ANY KIND is permitted.

 

How do I report someone whom I do not believe to be playing by the Fair Play rules above?

  • If you have reason to believe someone is referencing the illegal assistance of engine analysis, please report it to us directly, do-no take matters in your hand. Please do go around accusing without first reporting it to us, and this must be done so with concrete evidence. We will not entertain any false accusations based on a hunch.
  • When reporting any suspicious cheating, please include all relevant info (username, the reason for your suspicion, etc). Our Foul Play Detection Staff will conduct a thorough investigation, gathering statistics and reports on said user, keeping all findings confidential, taking appropriate action against the reported user if/when a concrete assessment has been made.

 

PLEASE DO NOT:

  • discuss your suspicions in the chat groups
  • make public accusations on a user’s wall or in their notes!
  • make public accusations of any username in public chat in Live Chess (while observing a game or playing a game)!

 

Important Notices:

  • Any of the above described public accusations/actions against a member will likely lead to being barred from our community, regardless of if that person is eventually found guilty or note.
  • Players found cheating will be banned from all future CNO events.
