I just finished a game on the live server that ended up as a pawn vs. queen endgame. I (black) had the queen. White only had his H pawn, which had never moved from h2. His king was on the other side of the board. He offered me a draw four times.
Does this kind of thing happen a lot? I have no pretentions about being a good player, but this was just insulting.
You must not have read the entire posting. It was a forced mate, and one that any novice could see. Even after I took the pawn out of play, making it a king+queen vs. king endgame, he kept offering draws. This had nothing to do with position.
I'll also point out that I've been careful to keep my opponent's user name out of this discussion. I'm not "blacklisting" anyone, just venting a little.
Ah - I thought you were refering to the original post. Sorry for the confusion.
I'm not nearly good enough to do that. Instead I offer to resign after every odd-numbered move, and it has served me well.
