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.


 
Wilhelm Steinitz

SteinitzBorn in 1836 in Prague, world champion between 1866 and 1894.
He laid down the base of positional game, therefore he is known as the founder of the modern chess. No doubt, Steinitz has opened a new chapter in the history of the game. Because of his careness, efforts for the economical play, the great attackers of his age (Chigorin, Gunsberg) have lost in order. His approach was not appreciated by the age he lived in. Players didn't take too much care of the pawn, the structure of the game, opposing to Steinitz, who probably took too much care of these.
On the first official world championship, in 1886 in New York and in St. Luis, Steinitz played 10:5 with 5 draws against the Polish Johannes Hermann Zukertort. He defended his title against Isidor Gunsberg, and twice against Mihail Chigorin too. Then lost it in 1894 against Emanuel Lasker in the final.
Finished his life in 1900 in New York in a mental hospital.
