Parents/Guardians of Minors

We welcome children to play in our tournament, but please be aware of the following:

  • Your child will play against adults, will be treated like an adult, and will be expected to interact like an adult.
  • Your child will not be supervised by us.
  • If a child is under 16 years old, a parent/guardian must remain in the building unless an exception is given by the tournament organizer.

Rule Variations in Effect at the ACC Open

  • 11H1. Director as witness only. In an event in which most games are not watched by directors, a director may refrain from correcting all illegal moves he or she may notice but simply serve as a witness should one of the players point out the illegal move before ten more moves have been made.
  • 15A. Paper scoresheet variation. The player using a paper scoresheet may first make the move, and then write it on the scoresheet, or vice versa.
