In Russian system it’s possible to have rated tournaments played online. But now we have AI cheating threats, and the federation introduces video recording.
(not a final form yet final now)
Relevant parts are (reworded and shortened for brevity):
3.1. The possibility of cheating can’t be completely excluded. To minimize dishonest play it’s recommended to video record the game process of each player. If the judge requests the video from one of the players, and it’s not provided, then the player assumes all risks associated with possible doubts about cheating. A player who refused to video record the games can’t appeal about their opponents’ cheating.
- Video recording
4.1. Blah-blah-blah. Recording must be with the sound on.
4.2. The beginning of the video should have an announcement about the tournament, the round, the pairing and the start time. Before fixing the camera into a stationary position a player makes a panoramic view of the playing room allowing to see people, equipment and furniture in there. Also the player’s appearance must be recorded to exclude outside communication methods like headphones.
4.3. The camera is fixed once for the entire recording and must show the player (or the team) together with the computer screen. The computer screen must be clearly seen with UI and all stones set during the game. All other windows must be hidden and irrelevant programs closed. The entrance to the game room should also be always in view.
4.4. The end of the video is made similar to the beginning and includes the result and finish time.
