Players must abide by chess.com fair play rules.  That means no assistance from any source including chess engines, databases, books, notes,

other players, analysis on chess boards etc. 

Be careful when making moves not to have a "mouse-slip" deposit a piece on the wrong square.  There is no way to take back an erroneous move.

It is possible to experience a temporary loss of internet connectivity on your computer.  This is generally your responsibility but if it persists inform 

the TD.
