American Tournaments

Post by Roger de Coverly » Tue Jul 07, 2015 4:23 pm

Whilst we debate here whether a smart phone can be carried openly or concealed in a jacket classified as a bag, look at what the USCF forum discusses in all seriousness.

The original reference is from the chesspub forum
http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/Y ... 7486/25#25

That site is mostly about openings, being a spin off from the Chess Publishing theory site of Tony Kosten, but does touch on general issues from time to time.
