    We've set our accounts to private. The people in the tournament can see the details but those who are spectators will see initials.

    Changes to Fair Play Policy
    MCC has decided to add some changes to the Allegro's fair play policy. See below for the updated policy:

    You are not permitted to use a computer engine, book (or other person) to assist you with your game play.
    You must be in the Zoom room. The arbiter has the right to ask you to turn your video on and share your screen. If you do not do this when asked, the arbiter has the right to not pair you for the next round or remove your results from the tournament.
    You are not permitted to watch streaming of your game while playing.
    We ask you to refrain from public accusations of cheating as this undermines the tournament and arbiters authority. Suspicions should be brought privately to the arbiter or organiser so we can deal with it as per our policy.
    It is up to the tournament arbiters and organisers to make fair-play decisions. Rather than being accused of cheating, your results won’t be accepted.
    Tornelo has round-by-round analysis tools to help arbiters monitor fair play.
    We may use independent tools to verify results before giving out any prizes.
    No talking about games in progress in the open chat.
    This policy can also be seen on the Allegro page on the MCC Website.

    just looks bad to my simple mind messing up black openings and advertising as a coach. Against lesser players. Just needs some attention.

    Is there a way to ban AC from commenting on Chess? Its a chess forum so people commenting on chess should know how the pieces move!
