    Friends of the immortal game, the question has been raised in my RHP chess club
    about the legitimacy of consultation matches, between different clubs as some are
    worried that it might be construed as a transgression of the terms of agreement, that
    is, one shall not consult with a third part etc etc I myself personally think that to cite
    the above rule within the context of consultation games, between two clubs is not a
    little pedantic and simply inapplicable within the context of consultation games. When
    I first joined the site we had a consultation match, the Scotland club v RHP
    International, an Evans gambit i believe which ended in a draw and it was a great way
    to learn from more experienced players. What think you, can you offer a comment to
    put our friends, who are zealous for rules and regulations at ease?

    umm, play it unrated?

    and no Colle variations.

    That "English as a Second Language" class you're taking is doing you a world of good!


    Seriously, if everyone is in agreement, then I doubt RHP is going to come knocking on the door. A club I belonged to ran several such games.

    we do play unrated as yet, the first one was a rather boring Slav which ended in a
    draw, this one started as a Reti and transposed to a Sicilian

    Nah!

    You are consulting with each other as one club or clan on the same
    game you are all playing.

    However.....

    What happens if one merry chappie decides he wants to sound clever
    and appear good and uses a box on the game to sift out good/bad moves.
    Everyone is duly impressed and follows his advice.

    The game gets moderated and found it has a 99% match up.

    Do they ban the whole clan?

    apparently there is a tree just outside the Alamo, St Antonio, Texas, for stuff like that!
