I have a question...
let's say there are two people playing on RHP
white opens with 1. e4
as black is thinking of his move, he leaves the board screen and goes to the forums to discover that someone has posted: The Sicilian Defence is the proper, best response to 1. e4 and based on this, the player goes back and plays 1. ... c5
then, white plays 2. Nf3
again, the black player goes back to thread to find that the same player has posted: 2. ... d6 is the proper and best response to 2. Nf3
what if this continues through the end of the game in say the Yugoslav Attack of the Dragon?
has the player with the black pieces obtained third party assistance?
is the poster guilty for making the statements that led to the player's victory in the game?
this is, of course, completely hypothetical and in no way a realistic situation... no one could follow a poster's game for the whole game, surely white would deviate from the poster's line eventually... but let's just say IF something like this were to happen...
