Sorry, just a hint of scepticism/cynicism creeping in never been a fan of conditional moves.

They do. If you look on the play page tab IF will not show if they are turned off.

I agree with you about bad behavior.

But neglecting this, the person from the quote could enter conditional moves if it is so predictable what is going to happen. That way he never has to bother about the game again. That is what I am doing if I have a path to victory that is forcing.




Another option yes! CW makes conditional moves optional though so he may not be a able too if his opponent has them off. Minor point of course as well is you have to remember to manually do the mating move. It will not allow you to mate on a conditional.

I have a tendency to trounce my opponent when offering a draw which is then subsequently declined by resigning, accepting the rejection of the wasted offer, and then just moving onto the next game which I might enjoy even more.

No reminders please of my even stranger behaviours on the board

If a game is going to be a dead draw, there should be a way of claiming it. I am involved in a game at the moment where my opponent has the A pawn, white squared bishop and king against my King. I have control of A8 and he has no way of winning. A worst case scenario could see this game go on for a couple of hundred moves as his pawn is not advanced.
Would it be possible for the claim draw button to be activated to bring dead end games like this to a conclusion ? Or at least send it to 'ADMIN' to make the call ?
If anyone wishes to look at it, it is game ********




Lifted this from the suggestions forum for a couple of reasons.

1) It is bad form and disrespectful to your opponent to post an active game number in any forum.

2) Your comment that "he has no way of winning" is not fact. He has sufficient material to mate and regardless how unlikely or impractical who is to say you will not blunder or time out. It is therefore your opponents prerogative to continue the game until such time they feel it is a waste of time. As you are the one with the lone king you obviously messed up somewhere so why should he not test that you will not again!

3) Everyone has varied ability and differing attitudes to what is a lost game. As a weaker player I will likely often frustrate better players carrying on with games they know they have won on paper. As a sportsman rather than a great chess player it is in my nature to do so and not give up until I decide or can see it is futile.

4) You obviously need to look at the rules carefully. If you knew them correctly you would realise your other comment that "could go on for a couple of hundred moves" is also not fact.

5) Purely for posting a live game number I think you should resign and apologise to your opponent.
