Take a draw already...

Chussmayt

If you think that a game is a dead draw (meaning with correct play no opponent get the upper hand) than just force the draw.  A game is drawn after claim of 50 move with out captures or pawn movement, Threefold repetition, or when a player who's opponent has insufficient material to mate runs out of time.

 

Game clocks are a wonderful thing especially if you insist on the game ending.  I rarely play over the board without one.   Time is part of the game thanks to the chess god/s so just force the draw before you time runs out.

Oh, hell no. Not after three other people did what you did and we addressed it will I let it go: 

 

YOU'RE A MORON. READ THE THREAD BEFORE POSTING. 

 

thnx

 

edit: Wow, sorry. I just looked at your profile and photo. I didn't realize I was addressing Moses. Please excuse my ignorance. And I don't *insist* on the game ending, Moses. It kind of has to at some point unless we want every game to be a stalemate because both players keeled over and died at the chessboard with a nasty, unkempt, wrangled beard like yours.

I just said you needed to read the whole thread. Didn't you see me write that?

I’m with Coffee on this- you don’t HAVE to read the whole thread before opining, but you might end up just appearing foolish.
1) somebody else may have long before said what you said, but said it better (they have)
2) OP may have already accepted what you said (he more or less has)
3) if a few people read only the OP and jump forward 140 posts, the conversation goes in circles
That said, it’s your right to post, but Coffee’s right to ridicule

Coffeeand420, I must say I have never met such a talented player with a sophisticated understanding of the game as you do. Your approach to the game has helped you reach new heights that this game has never seen before. Your extraordinary talents have helped you reach playing abilities that I could not even imagine were possible in a short period of time. I am positive that your contributions to the game will help many chess players as they aspire to be as strong as you. I have no doubt in my mind that in a few years you will be one of the greatest chess players this planet has ever seen. We are truly blessed to have you.
