Use of External Help


According to the club's Regulations, external help is NOT permitted during games; no computer software - including chess engines such as Crafty, Fritz, etc. - can be used to suggest, generate, test, or verify moves, or to analyze games while they are in progress.

Use of chess databases, books or similar that can influence player's strength is also forbidden during a game.

Do not ask your grandmaster friend, or anyone else, for help in playing or analyzing any of your running games.

All help is forbidden which could misrepresent or exaggerate a player's strength, or influence the result of a game. Here players must play using only their own brains.

Any assistance that supports learning, developing, improving and doesn't connect to any of your running games is permitted.

Of course, after your game ends you can analyze it with the help of computers or friends, since recognizing good and bad moves improves your chess knowledge.

Enforcing the above rules is very hard in the practice, therefore we trust you to obey them. There is no prize money you could cheat for. In this club we believe that fair play is the most important thing.

The club may organize tournaments for other organizations from time to time, and accepts the regulations of those tournaments. Some organizations may not prohibit computer or other external help, and this is always shown in the rules for these tournaments and games. So, computer or other help in these and ONLY in these games may be allowed.


 
Arpad Emrick Elo

ArpadElo The ELO system for rating chessplayers was named after its originator, Arpad Elo. Born in 1903, Elo emigrated to the USA when he was 10. Educated at Chicago University, he later became professor of physics at Marquette University, Milwaukee. He learned to play chess in his teens and played in a number of tournaments. He was champion or co-champion of Wisconsin 9 times between 1935 and 1961. He was active in the USCF (United States Chess Federation) from its founding in 1939. He spent 20 years developing and validating his chess rating system, which was adopted by FIDE in 1970 for international use.
His book 'The Rating of Chessplayers, Past and Present' was published in 1978 and is the definitive reference on the ELO rating system. Most chess organisations that perform ratings for players use the ELO system, or a variation of it.
