    That's a draw for sure, and nicely done since white clearly has the advantage.

    There's is nothing wrong in playing a three fold repetition. If one wants to draw. His position is bad conpared to you, and he got the chance to draw, so he is playing for a draw. If he breaks the repetition, mostly he would lose unless you blunder, so he is playing it safe.

    he's allowed to play on eternal chess. he probably can't win so he'll get the draw this way.

     and I'm now certain of going through to the next round :D

    Guys, if you really wanna see something weird look at group #263. Out of the six players we are five that ended up with the same score and tiebreak. But rules are rules and we are five going through to round 2.

    in case of a tie between two players with even tiebreakers, you both go threw. to the next round. Believe me that has kept me alive more than once beforeLaughing.
