Look at the end VERY closely...
the game must've been a draw by repitition..!
You need to claim the draw in order for it to be a draw.
so how is this game won?
Time. Because if we go on forever, I will eventually win on time. I forgot to tell you the time controls.
He had like 20 secs and I had like 30.
At any point he could have clicked the "Draw" button for an automatic draw by repetition.
exactly my point, why didn't he do that
Obvious, either he is'nt aware about the rule or he doesnt know how to clain the draw..!!
You can do that? Wow. I wasnt aware. Sorry :P
you can draw by agreement (one player offers draw other accepts, usually in equal positions, equal material, equal time or whatever) draw by stalemate (one player cannot move) draw by 50 move rule (50 moves by both players where neither is a pawn move or a capture) draw by 3 repititions or draw because of insufficient material (no checkmate is available with the pieces left on the board). note only insufficient material and stalemate are automatic the rest must be claimed by hitting the draw button
Another option was naturally 22...Rfd8 (instad of putting the other rook there) when white may resign.
Laughing matter! Its only a chance win, nothing to boast about!
what the #$%^was he playing and how did he win?
