Will Auto Draw kick in on On-line Chess Matches

  • #1

    Question:  will the auto draw or 3 move? draw kick in automatically in an on-line match like it does in live chess?  Thanks in advance! #on-line#notOTB#notLive

    If claimed, yes for threefold. Insufficient just automatic.

    What is "if claimed" must my opponent declare it?  if he does not want it can it be declined?

    In threefold if the position has been repeated 3 times (you can't claim ahead of your move as in OTB) and you hit draw, game is drawn instantly and without agreement.

    @Scottrf, thank you very much :)

    Actually I think it gives you a clue as the button changes to 'Claim draw' instead of 'Offer draw'.
