Why doesn't 3 fold repetition always work when playing live blitz?
it does work...you just have to hit the "draw" button when that happens...it doesn't happen automatically
I have seen it work sometimes others note. Here is a frustrating game I just lost because Chess.com is full of bugs. Starts at move 24.
I have seen it happen automatically, perhaps my oppenent clicked it. I will have to look out for it next time, so annoying I didn't know that...
yes...the times it worked your oppenent clicked it.
please fix this...it is so fundamental
In OTB games, you have to claim 3-move repetition and 50 move rule draws, it's not automatic. Why should the computer do it for you here?
You don't even get penalized if you make an errant claim of a draw as you would at OTB. If it isn't a legal draw, clicking the Draw button just offers a draw instead.
ok, fair points, I guess I've been spoilt by playing on another site where it's automatic. When you're used to that and it doen't happen it's kindof a 'wtf' moment. I bet tons of people make this mistake though, it could be made clearer to prevent these threads from happening.
Yeah I had no idea-but next time this happens I will be ready to hit the draw button.
It is clear -- it's right in the rules. It's that "other site" that conditioned you to a version of chess that deviates slightly from the rules that's to blame here.
surely you're not suggesting I read the manual. Unthinkable. Inconceivable!
Well, I guess I'm saying that if you're going to insist that the rules be applied properly here you should be sure you know what they are.
Crazy Canadians and their big ideas.
3 fold repitition is NOT an automatic draw. You must claim it as a draw. Same goes for the 50 move rule.
Question: do you have to claim a 3 fold repetition as soon as it occurs or are you allowed claim later in the game? Thanks for any answers
