The Small Print:
Prizes will be split over players with same number of points – not on tiebreak.
Phones need to be completely turned off during play.
Standard penalty for an illegal move is an extra 2 minutes for the opponent.
When you touch a piece, you must move with it (if legal).
Releasing a piece on a square makes the move final.
Castling: first move the king and then the rook.
