Rules of skype chess tournament Rules and Guidelines
The tournament time control is as follows:
A minimum of 30 moves must be played in 60 minutes, with any remaining time
being added to each succeeding hour.
I don't like to talk about forfeits, so I hope none will be warranted. A
forfeit will be issued if a player does not appear on Skype within 30
minutes of the scheduled time for the game, or if a player does not make a
sincere attempt to schedule a game before the deadline for each round. If
the player contacts me either by email, on Skype, or by calling me on my
mobile phone and gives me a reason for the delay, I will do my best to
arrange for the game to be played later.
(my mobile with international code is +91-73-50-59-55-66, i use Skype,
Anyone who receives two forfeits in a tournament will be removed from the
tournament but not from Skype_Chess.
2. All tournament games will be played on Skype, lichess or free
chess. So, if you have not yet
installed Skype, now is the time. There will be a conference call for the
two players, the timekeeper, and any persons wishing to observe the game.
Once the game begins, no one else will be allowed to join the call, so that
the players can concentrate without any interruptions. Moves are to be
announced in English, using, if possible, the international alphabet Alpha,
Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, and Hotel.
