06.11.18 - During a routine Anti-Cheating check by the arbiting team during the 1st 4NCL International, a player was found to have used electronic means to assist them with their games.

 

After further investigation, that player was subsequently disqualified from the tournament. The details have been forwarded to the FIDE Fair Play Commission, and consequently it is not possible to comment further on the case at this time.

 

We have received a number of questions about the scores of the players in the tournament. Page 13 of the FIDE Anti-Cheating Guidelines, which are binding on us given the tournament is FIDE-rated, say the following:

 

“In an individual Open tournament, the offender shall be excluded from the final ranking. Each of the offender’s games shall be considered a loss, but the score for the opponent shall remain unchanged. All games shall be reported as unplayed.”

 

None of the 8 games played by the player have been submitted for FIDE rating, and they will not be submitted for ECF grading.

 

Alex Holowczak - Chief Arbiter, 1st 4NCL International


Registrations 18-19

02.11.18 - The new registrations are here with bookmarked links to squads or teams - with thanks to Dave Thomas, Chief Arbiter.


Friends of Chess

02.11.18 - We are very grateful for a recent contribution to the 4NCL from the Friends of Chess.

 

The Friends of Chess was founded in 1969 with the express objective to provide funds to aid and initiate chess enterprises in ways which are perceived as making a difference. Given the wide-ranging objects there is no limit on the type of chess-related activity that can be supported. However, the majority of grants awarded in recent years have fallen into one of the following four categories; support for individuals seeking titles, support for events offering norm or rating opportunities, support for teams and support for players with disabilities.

 

If you are interested in becoming a Friend or finding out more, please contact the Treasurer, Simon Brown - .


Pairings 18-19

26.10.18 - The pairings for the all-play-all rounds (1-7) are published for Div 1 & 2, 3a & 3b. 3n and 4s will be available as soon as possible. More information here.

 

Note: Owing to an unfortunate error the Div 1 pairings published today were incorrect. Contrary to the rules Wood Green Monarchs had been placed in the same pool as Wood Green 1. The pairings have now been corrected. Apologies to affected captains - Dave Thomas, Chief Arbiter.


Main Rules

22.7.18 - Available here together with a copy of the tracked changes. There are several amends from last season and Captains and Managers are asked to make themselves and their team colleagues familiar with them as soon as possible - particular thanks to Dave Thomas, the Arbiter team and Mike Truran.
