Anti-Cheating: Palm Beach Chess Staff and lichess.org will conduct an independent analysis of games of any player we suspect of using assistance during their games. If any player's lichess account is marked as using chess computer assistance, we reserve the right to annul or submit as rated forfeit losses any of that player's games at our sole discretion.
Cheating is a major problem in the chess community, do not make us take steps in filing an Ethics Complaint with US Chess. Keep these tournaments fun and fair for everyone.
Scholarship Opportunities: We at Palm Beach Chess feel that everyone should have the opportunity to compete. Title 1 students and students who receive free and reduced lunch please contact us.
