Threefold repetition not applied - bug?

Jubaris

Hi, I had a game which resulted in my win when the opponent ran out of time, but it should have been draw by repetition (the same position took place 4 times, actually!), but it didn't happen.

My guess is that somehow I confused the system with a lot of premoves.

It's not automatic. Somebody has to click the draw button.

The only automatic draws are stalemate or running out of time with insufficient mating material. (i.e., lone king)

Thanks, ashamed to admit I didn't know that... grin.png

I had to look this up yesterday, you have to make your move that puts the three fold repetition in and then click the Draw button
