Chess Starter.

This page will tell you about chess tournaments and the rules about them

Never have your phone turned on, if you are caught with a phone you will lose your match.

Always record neatly, if you want to find you mistakes then record neatly.

Always follow the rules of the clock, these include:
Use the same hand to press the clock as you do to move the piece,
If your opponent runs out of time but you don't notice, they can still checkmate you,
Never say that someone has run out of time in a different game to the one your playing,
Use your time wisely, there isn't always the need to have more time than your opponent but to use it wisely is the key to winning.

Always be graceful in defeat, even if you think that your opponent just won by a stroke of undeserved luck, still don't get angry with your opponent.
