Environment - Steps Taken in the TSA Club
This is a Club environment and the players get to know each other
The players' Real names are published on Chess-Results.com
The players are playing under the Chess SA Rating System and their Chess SA ID's are published
NO high prized tournaments are held and this reduce using assistance significantly
From time to time members are informed of the clean track record the Club has
99 percent of all tournaments are overseen by an arbiter
There are WhatsApp groups for players to receive information of the Tournaments
Players and Parents have my WhatsApp number and can at anytime approach me
Tornelo have real time fair play reports during tournaments
LiChess have statistical analysis on all matches
Chess.com have statistical analysis on all matches
All tournaments are uploaded to check with sophisticated Fair Play Software
If players play outside the boundaries of the software they are informed
Players who play "too well" are reported to Platforms to do an independent verification
The TSA Club may remove players if they bring the Club's name into disrepute
TSA Club is for HUMANS - NOT Computers
We know computers have ratings above 3000
If you want to play as computer, LiChess allow you to create a "BOT" and enter leagues!
We are here to have fun against our peers and not to play computers
To say your rating is yours when using assistance is just "silly" !?
