    It is very stupid to allow a chess player access to ANY kind of electronic device during a game.

    I agree. Pen/pencil, and paper only, is how it should be.

    I also wonder, for those who would know:

    In OTB amateur tournaments—what's preventing a player from going to the restroom, then firing up an electronic device to input their position into an engine?

    An easy solution is to allow players to look at their opponent's scoresheet/machine on the said player's turn.This already happens around where i live because kids mess up notation alot

    at 16 he is not a little boy. excuse me, but in many countries he would already be sent to war. In past times he could have already been married. 


    His mom is a Helicopter mom raising a nitwit and a loser for a son. If he really is a little boy she should bend him over her lap and spank his sorry butt for being such a doofus. Sorry, I get so tired of parents defending their overgrown kids that really should just face the consequences of their poor choices so they can learn to do differently next time. 


    I would encourage him to consider a career in politics though, given his (ahem) talent! happy.png
