Thanks for that....most helpful. I should have done more research before asking the question.




Not Really...

That is and has always been the spirit of this site.

Nice to hear you got another win regardless.

Please read the following information under the Help heading:

Help > FAQ > General > Game Board > "What does the Draw button do?"

Also, within the answer to that question, read the link "extract from the rules of Chess."

You can make a claim via the Draw button for the 50 Move Rule at the appropriate time.

If you can hold out for the 50 move rule the game will be a draw. 50 moves since the last capture or pawn move.

Thanks for your thoughts guys and yes I just won my first ko norm in another ko final which finished after I posted.
Hope my opponent in my first post doesn't keep playing moves ad-infinitum to put off the 'draw' as there is nothing much I can do to stop him doing that. It's an awkward position and we could still be playing in 200 moves time without repetition.....I'm not that patient really!

If you win the competition you have done so fairly and without need to feel you some how earned victory by default.

I won't comment on the game as it is active. But judging by your ratings you are both in a position to judge if the game should be drawn or played on.

Either way, why would you deliberately resign or make a move that will lose you the game. You would not consider it in a normal game I presume! The KO result is irrelevant.

White knows they have to win. Black knows a draw will suffice!
Them's the rules you both agreed to Round 1 my friend
