    I got the idea of a new playing section.

    In this area it would be no holds barred - anything goes. You can use books, databases, and engines. However you dont have to play what the engine says (obviously) and it doesnt count to your normal grade. What you think?

    Why would anyone find using an engine enjoyable?Chess engines are the bane of internet chess,I say wipe them out of your computer and use the cd as a Christmas ornament or a beer coaster.

    Crap.
    By the way you can already use books and databases.

    There are chess tournaments where humans and engines team up. I think it sounds like a fun idea.
