KEEPING NOTES ON GAMES: On the GM provided game record, players should make notes about the distinguishing features of their individual games so that your GM will be able to record the noteworthy events for the WBC tournament report. The more material I receive, the more justice I will be able to do to the tournament players in the report.
A FINAL NOTE: Matches are not being specifically timed (they should be completed in no longer than two hours). In the event that I am not available to rule on disputes, or it happens to be a game I am playing, my assistant GMs - will rule on any disputes, or in extreme cases, adjudications of games. Because of this tournament format, it is in the interest of all players to play as quickly as reasonably possible. Players deemed intentionally stalling will be warned and if necessary their game adjudicated taking into account excessively slow play leading to potential disqualification.
