An aid.A helper.GM's can have seconds when they play a match to help them analyse adjourned positions(or simply do it for them while they go to bed) and assist them in various other ways.
Originally posted by gambit3Yeah I don't like it either.The outcome of a match can be very much determined by the quality of the seconds you brought with you.Not exactly what I want to see.When two players battle it should be just them.
