    OK played a game vs 'ypd1662' - at move 67 I had NO pieces left (king not withstanding) and the following moves numbered FIFTY THREE turns (or 'complete moves' (I wish someone would make a clearer term for a single move by one player vs a 'single move' by both players), I requested a draw three times and was ignored until I told him I don't play with cheats and resigned the game - and blocked him.

    Simply because you do not know the rules of chess does not make your opponent a cheater.

    Any piece capture (which you did when you took his Bishop) or pawn move resets the 50 move clock. Frankly, watching the game was painful as you should have been mated a long, long time ago.And as other mentioned, when the 50 move comes up, you must claim it. If on move 119, you would have clicked draw instead of taking the Bishop, it would have been a draw.

    I think you owe ypd1662 an unblock and an apology.

    Eric_Fleet is right, you should not have taken that bishop. ANY other move would have earned you a draw.

    Also, besides having to claim 50-move-rule, you must also claim 3-fold-repetition.

    I used to hate the 50 move rule for a draw.

    Now i love it consider when i was taught it was the 21 move rule which is more than enough.

    Actually 50 moves isn't even enough, and is being considered amended to allow won games to play out to wins that take more than 50 moves to do so. Most Knight+Bishop mates take over 25 moves with perfect play, and that's just a very simple state.

    For example, take this Mate in 546:
