Made in Russia: South Cross Fuseki, example 2

Second example of South Cross fuseki.

This time my opponent was too aggressive - he decided to fight to close to my center stones.

If you would like to know more about Victor Chebotarev, who invented this fuseki, you can start from watching these photos.
Pay attention to his right hand. How do you think, is it allowed by rules to use such "devices"?

it's actually not that difficult to see what it does.. first of all, it nulifies almost all influence aimed towards the sides and obviously middle, and second, what makes it a great choice for fighters, it usually gives you're opponent no choice but to fight it out.

haha What the hell is that?

my guess is it distracts the opponent. any other use would be clearly infringe the rules, like masking if you make left the stone or not or sliding stones secretly...

If the referee sees nothing problematic with this device I would start blocking his view with some object like a notepad during my moves.

What exactly does he use that thing for??

If I call the referee, can he force him to take it out?
