Is it allowed to use external help in the club?
  Use of External Help


According to the club's Regulations, external help is NOT permitted during games; no computer software - including chess engines such as Crafty, Fritz, etc. - can be used to suggest, generate, test, or verify moves, or to analyze games while they are in progress.

Use of chess databases, books or similar that can influence player's strength is also forbidden during a game.

Do not ask your grandmaster friend, or anyone else, for help in playing or analyzing any of your running games.

All help is forbidden which could misrepresent or exaggerate a player's strength, or influence the result of a game. Here players must play using only their own brains.

Any assistance that supports learning, developing, improving and doesn't connect to any of your running games is permitted.

Of course, after your game ends you can analyze it with the help of computers or friends, since recognizing good and bad moves improves your chess knowledge.

Enforcing the above rules is very hard in the practice, therefore we trust you to obey them. There is no prize money you could cheat for. In this club we believe that fair play is the most important thing.

The club may organize tournaments for other organizations from time to time, and accepts the regulations of those tournaments. Some organizations may not prohibit computer or other external help, and this is always shown in the rules for these tournaments and games. So, computer or other help in these and ONLY in these games may be allowed.


 
The Kuruksetra battle

When the morning of that day has dawned, the two parties faced each other in arms.
The warriors stood in four rows: kings and princes in front on shining charriots, in jewelry and gold-adorned armors, with glistening weapons. Battle flags swung on high poles of each chariots, they will recognize each others and the enemy in the deepest bustle of the battle.
The cavarly formed the second line. They were ready on light and quick horses, to support the charriots.
Huge elephants like mountains stood in the third line, armored frameworks on their back, fullfilled with archers and lancers: when the charriots and chavarly disarranged the enemy, they will roll like rocks over them.
The infantry formed the fourth line behind the elephants, with shields and swords, to settle the battle with their bulk.
(from the Mahabharata)

Position of the chess pieces is similar to the above:
Infantry: the pawns
Charriots: the rooks
Chavarly: the knights
Elephants: the bishops (on schematical illustrations in the Middle Ages they were similar to the fools hat: the name of this piece is fou in Franche, which means fool, and Laufer in German which means something like bishop)
The queen is a minister of the king in the easter chess, fersan in Persian, and mudabbi in Arabic.
