According to the visitors of Chessvibes the current rule about the draw offer should be changed, to fight short draws. The majority (59%) likes to either allow a draw offer only after a certain amount of moves, or not to be allowed at all. This is the result of the current Chessvibes poll (in the grey column) about the draw offer, which is similar to the current suvey of the Association of Chess Professionals for their members and title holders.

The ACP-survey naturally has been started to do something about the large number of quick draws in (top) tournaments. Sofia is an exception to the rule and according to the survey this rule is also normal at tournaments on Corsica: the draw offer is not possible. Most top players are positive about this and to some extend, the same can be said about the Chessvibes visitors. Today more than a thousand people have voted, so it's time to have a look at the results.

According to 20%, the draw offer should only be allowed after move 30, 16% says "after move 40" and 5% thinks you should only be allowed to offer a draw after move 50. According to 18% we should get rid of the draw offer and so 59% likes to see the FIDE rules to be changed. 40% thinks the current rules should be left unaltered.
