Re: Stockfish Handicap Matches

Would he be allowed to play the game himself on chess.com while commenting on his own site? That would avoid a lot of problems, including the time delay for me to observe and make his move, the chance of a mistake by me, and the issue of having to play as myself while actually making his moves?
