Tournament is Fide rated and uses increment, but USCF rules will be used. Note that scorekeeping is required throughout the game, even if either or both players are under 5 minutes.
Rule 11H1 also applies.
Note other rule variation: Players not using Monroi devices, may write move down then play it. Excessive erasing will be grounds to make player move then write move down. Players using Monroi devices must make move then 'notate' the move.
Monroi devices will be used on top boards. No one may refuse to use Monroi device.
