Rules:

FIDE rules will apply. The second illegal move will result in the immediate loss of the game, provided your opponent still has mating material left on the board, otherwise a draw will be declared. Mobile phones must be switched off. If your mobile phone rings, you will automatically lose the game. The only exception to this rule is for doctors on call. They may keep their phone on silent (vibrate mode) provided they have informed the arbiters in advance of round 1 commencing.
To register please either email Brendan Jamison playchessni@gmail.com or Ram Rajan sram.vrajan@gmail.com before the deadline of 12 noon on Thursday 19th April.
