Being offered a draw

1gorilic1
I am having a problem in daily chess where I have a winning position. The player than offers me a draw, which I declined. Then he offers it again five seconds later. Then again. He has done this six times now. My question is: does the clock keep running while I keep responding? Also, he does not seem to be online while this is happening. What should I do?

Just ignore him and make a move.  Moving a piece declines the draw offer.  Not sure why you are worried about time though in a correspondence game...

You might want to clear your browser cache though.  I suppose it's possible if he doesn't seem to be online that the cache is full and spitting the draw offer back at you repeatedly.

Simply refuse each time, or just make your move which also classes as a refusal. If he is offering a draw when it is his turn to move then his clock will keep ticking and you are not obliged to respond until he has moved.

It's how people who are getting best lash out. They are trying to annoy you to get back at you for being better. It's childish. Someone needs to make a movie about if otb players acted like online chess players. I could just see that one, player wins a queen other player offers hand to draw, "Um no your clearly losing" "Draw!" "No" "Draw" you could make the draw person sound like a Seagull on repeat hahah

If he’s offering a draw then he knows he’s losing so just go for the kill.

I thought once you offered a draw and it was declined, no other offers can be made unless the person who declined elects to offer a draw later. That is annoying to keep getting offers pop up. Knowing me, I would accidentally click on accept trying to close it out...lol.

etiquette-wise that's absolutely correct, but there's no specific restriction; incessant draw offers OTB though could be classed as distracting the opponent...

One other point, it’s his move, I was just looking at the game when the draw offer appeared. Probably will go away when it’s my move
