I'm enjoying this site and all that it has to offer. I've been playing online where each player has up to 3 days to move.I've been playing - and I hope that all the players are following this unenforcible rule - as if I were in person;namely,I am analysing in my head and not setting-up the position and possibilities on additional chess boards or consulting a computer.In other words,players should be on their honror;otherwise,it really would be considered cheating - and what's the point?
3-days-per-move is correspondence chess. Analysing the position (without an engine) & looking up games in databases is completely allowed. You'll notice this site gives you a popup analysis window with the game.
