    I'm new, and didn't see anything about this. I'm not terribly familiar with most openings, so if an opponent goes down an unfamiliar line, am I permitted to reference information on that opening?

    Yes! From the "Terms of Service":

    (b) While a game is in progress you may not refer to chess engines, chess computers or be assisted by a third party. Endgame tablebases may not be consulted during play but you may reference books, databases consisting of previously played games between human players, and other pre-existing research materials.
