This is one of the critical controls to ensure the players are playing the games independently. Players and TDs are not allowed to record the meeting at any time during the tournament.

Suspicous games will be reviewed by the TDs and at least one more Board Executive. If cheating is confirmed, the player's ID will be reported to lichess. Lichess has a very good cheating detection system so they can make the final call. The ID will be banned by lichess if the case is confirmed. The offending player's score in the tournament will be forfeit and will be banned by CJCC online team from participating in future online tournaments.
