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.
