The TD Show Episode 17 - Chapter 10, Rules for Online Tournaments and Matches

This week's “The TD Show” topic will be "Chapter 10, Rules for Online Tournaments and Matches" and will air at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific on Thursday, August 20 on the US Chess Twitch channel at

The show will be hosted by NTD Chris Bird and this week's special guest is Senior TD Judit Sztaray who is also a member of the Online Play Task Force that was tasked with revising Chapter 10 over the past few months. During this episode we will discuss the new Chapter 10 rules, which come into effect August 21, 2020, with specific emphasis on the areas that Tournament Directors should be aware of if they are overseeing such events.

For folks tuning in live, Twitch will provide some interaction between the show and the audience, allowing you to ask questions in real-time and we’ll also finish each episode with some light-hearted fun in the form of trivia based on the topic discussed. However, if you cannot tune in live, each episode will be archived in the TD Videos playlist at the US Chess YouTube Channel.

You can view and download the full Chapter 10 rules available on the US Chess website.
