I would appreciate if a staff member could answer me, because I never cheated and I don't want to begin. I want to know if I have the right to make a draw offer to my opponent even if I have VERY good chances to win the game. The reason it's the following: If my opponent loose the game, he will have the same number of points than a third player in our group and the three of us will pass to the next round. If he draws against me, only he and I will pass. (2 players pass in each round). It's kind of important, because we are only 7 players who still in the tournament. So, I would eliminate a player by this draw offer. I saw in the rules that a player cannot play for loosing, but offering a draw is it considered to be part of this cheating rules? For me, it's only strategic and strategy is part of the game. Thanks for your answers!
you do have the right to offer a draw or resign for any reason
Thanks my friend! My first idea was sending you a message, but I choose the forum. Same result!
