There is still no automatic draw at 3-fold repetition!! Wake up, software guys, this is the standard chess rule.
I played a game with something like 10 repetitions. Just open some book by, e.g., Karsten Mueller on the endgame, and look in the section about drawing resources.
This is really strange, and very irritating.
There is no such rule. You have to claim the draw yourself.
Are you crazy? "No such rule". It is in any book in the world. And check with Fritz, repeat the moves 3 times and there is a draw. You are seriously wrong Mr
FIDE handook of rules, par. 9.2:
The game is drawn upon a correct claim by the player having the move, when the same position, for at least the third time (not necessarily by a repetition of moves):
a. is about to appear, if he first writes his move on his scoresheet and declares to the arbiter his intention to make this move, or
b. has just appeared, and the player claiming the draw has the move.
So: you claim it, you get it. That simple.
Next time please be better informed before claiming nonsense.
So you see, op, even an IM grasps the rules.
Improbable, I know.
This hasn't come up in a game with me on Chess.com, how does one claim a draw?
You just hit the "draw" button on the bottom, and it will be automatically granted if there's really a 3-fold.
I did not know that.
3rd time may be the charm?
OP had already been informed.
A game can also end in a draw. Nobody wins or loses, and each player gets ½ a point. There are many paths that end in a draw.
1. Agreement- both players agree that the game is likely to be a draw.
2. Insufficient mating material. (Don't ever use this phrase on a date!)
4. Three move repetition
5. Both players run out of time
6. 50 Move rule
you are living up to your name Mr idiot.
Don't mean to hijack a thread, disregard if it offends, but for clarification, in OTB games, if you touch a piece, you MUST move that piece? Is that right?
that is correct. except for the adjustment of the pieces.
Pardon moi monsieur, Je adoube....merci
