FAIR PLAY: In case any fair play violations are discovered, none of the games played by the violator will be US Chess rated. For the purposes of standings, any player who loses to someone who violates fair play rules will be given 1/2 point. Any wins or draws against fair play violators will stand, though the games will not be rated.
PAIRING REQUIREMENTS: If there are less than 4 players in each section, the pairing for the tournament will not start and games will be canceled for that section, and players will get their registration fee refunded
