8. To ensure a fair playing environment for the players, we will monitor and record videos of the U1800 division through Zoom. This requests that during the tournament, each player in the U1800 division must set up a smartphone, laptop or a similar device in the right (or left) back corner. There needs sufficient lighting to clearly see the display screen and the player’s profile.
Players need to log in to Zoom with this device, and must keep their microphone turned on. The name displayed in Zoom should be changed to the player’s full name.

Zoom ID: 815 3980 0715
Passcode: summit

If a player participating in the U1800 division does not use the appropriate camera, they can still participate in the competition, but cannot win any prizes!

Zoom login opens at 8.30am on Sunday the 21st, I will also enter Zoom to help you check whether the camera meets the requirements before the tournament.

Please remember that only using the front camera on the computer you are playing chess on is not acceptable.
