Last I checked the official rules of chess say 50 moves without a capture is a draw. It would be nice to see this implemented for live chess. Thanks.
No, there isn't such an official rule.
There is one who says draw for 50 moves without capture AND no pawn moves.

oh and the 50 move rule is implemented in live chess. it's not automatic though, in accordance with the rules you must claim the draw.
I AGREE WITH COOKIEMONSTER.WHEN TWO PLAYERS CANNOT MAKE A LEGAL MOVE IT IS UP TO ONE PLAYER TO CALL FOR A DRAW
