Time control is 3 minutes + 2 seconds increment and players must have a webcam installed (or can use a smart device to act as a camera) to be placed behind their back so that their computer screen, laptops, part of table, hand and player can be seen clearly by the Arbiter. Those who do not comply with the rules will forfeit their game and considered to have lost their game. Repeated offenders to the ruling may find themselves being expelled from the tournament by the Arbiters.
