Way back in August I was listening to Adam Raoof’s The Chess Circuit podcast and heard a great chat with Peter Hornsby who had organised a huge English leagues event called 2020Chess. Will it be happening again in 2021?
He very kindly shared the following two documents for the benefit of arbiters and organisers of online events all around the world.
- Some thoughts about online cheating and fair play: CAPS and Cheating Allegations (Hamish Olsen)
- One of the most comprehensive sets of rules that I’ve seen: Online Rules Stage 6 (Peter Hornsby)
Tornelo’s goal is to help arbiters run better chess tournaments and to make your lives easier! Sharing these sorts of resources and thinking means that all arbiters can benefit and improve.
We are shortly launching a page on this site which will contain lots of resources for arbiters and tournament organisers:
- Draft Rules
- Templates for fair play
- Template emails and communication to send
- Presentations for Opening/Closing Ceremony and prizegiving
What else would be useful for you?
