I recently played an online game in which I intended to draw by threefold repetition. I repeated the same positon three times and hit the draw link, but alas. NO draw. And notwithstanding I was checkmated the next move by my opponent.
Can the points for the draw be scored? Also some clear instructions on threefold draw procedures.
I attached a link to the game. Perhaps this was not threefold repetition?
It was not a threefold repetition. The position, on both sides of the board, needs to be repeated 3 time. Your opponent continued to change the position with his rook, king and pawn moves.
LOL, that explains it, boy was that a dumb move on my part! LMAO my opponent must have thought I was a patzer, or eh... maybe I am a patzer.
Anyways, I learned something new today. Thanks for the information!
Ha - know how you feel! Don't know about you, but I think it's time for the drinking to start!!
