I don't know if chess.com let's you claim a draw by 50 move rule, but I would be careful to include a pawn push every 49 moves.
pretty sure you can claim by 50 move so be careful
In one of my recent games I couldn't.
Aren't you just giving this guy what he wants? He wants to put off losing as long as he can and you're letting him put it off longer. What exactly do you think you're accomplishing?
You've got a point, it doesn't really matter if he will resign. You can win whenever you want.
I thought discussion of ongoing games was forbidden.
Well the official drawing rules are:
It is 50 moves from the time that you last moved a pawn, which was move 56 (and not 50 moves from the start of the game).
Sorry, I kind got into discussing the game instead of just rules. Play however you want, but just be aware of what the draw rules are.
Also, it is 50 moves from the time that you last moved a pawn
or a capture. Black can force white to capture pieces a couple times.
I have no respect for the poster. Stop trying to gloat about your poorly played victory.
El_senior, that's a ridiculous thing to say. I believe that the post is in poor taste, but the player is clearly not discussing or consulting about the ongoing game,
It's not at all ridiculous. He posted an ongoing game, and the first two responses clearly gave pertinent information that is advantageous to him and disadvantageous to his opponent.
Five minutes before he started this thread (10:07 p.m. by my time zone), the OP posted the same ongoing game in another thread (post #3, at 10:02 p.m.), and in that post he didn't even bother removing his opponent's name from the game. The OP is so impressed with how much time he spent setting up his conditional moves instead of finishing off the mate that he wants to ensure maximum coverage for his little stunt.
The bigger twit in this game isn't the guy with the White pieces (although it's close).
You guys are right - it was in poor taste. And I already knew about the 50 move rule, btw -- who doesnt.
