Rule Clarification

Sherwood, Russell  Sunday, March 3, 2019

ICCF issued a rule clarification today. In simple terms, it reaffirms that a player may not consult other players during a live game, regardless of it being an Individual or Team Event. By consult, it is meant shared analysis or assessment of the position. 

The use of typical tools such as Databases, Opening books, Engines etc is acceptable, consulting other players on a specific position in a live game is not.. It is worth noting that collaboration prior to the start of an event is acceptable.

The WCCF have never encouraged our players to use these methods and is not aware of any of our players utilising them but please be cognizant of this clarification. If you are unsure of the validity of any behaviour please get in touch with the WCCF Executive Committee
