That doesn't help. The point is; my opponent had an instant win if he kept the clock moving, but he ran out of time. I should've won, but it said "draw by insufficient material".
Why should you have won, when you can't mate with a king alone? That's no bug.By the way, you missed a mate on move 28 ;)
"If a player runs out of time and the opponent calls the time, then the player who ran out of time loses the game (unless the opponent does not have enough pieces to checkmate, in which case it is a draw)."
The number of people who don't understand this basic rule is really astounding.
There seems to be three guaranteed threads every day:
3 fold repetition.
You should have to do a chess test before being allowed to post on the forums.
But still, why does it say that? It's ultimately ambiguous. Should've been more specific like "draw on time by insufficient material"
One should consider choosing their name wisely, especially if they are considering calling themselves "Grandmaster" ;)
Yep. And one should consider to learn the rules of the game one is playing, instead of bickering on issues of language.
Sorry, next time I will personally drive to your home and shove an FIDE rulebook into your face, and hold your eyes open, so that you have to make no effort at all except the occasional eyeball movement. Hopefully you will not consider that too taxing.
How come when my King's in check, I can't move my h pawn? Is this a bug or something?
P.S. Please don't send Ivandh to explain.
