49 ( +1 | -1 ) But it does not recognize....the 50 move [no exchange, no pawn move] rule. Which is a technical Draw!! Unfortunately there are a few here that will not accept a Draw when a Draw is the only possible outcome. In tournament play that can hold up the entire tournament.
When that 50 move rule is reached I will have to notify Mike but since the GK tourneys are 2 day/move there may or may not be enough time for an answer prior to the expiration of time.
53 ( +1 | -1 ) Ican wholehearted support what honololou writes. What a shame that some players don't understand, to act with sportsmanship and dignity in the game. I can only repeat, what I have written several times before, whenever I come across such behavior, I put that kind of people on my NO PLAY LIST and I recommend others to do the same.
72 ( +1 | -1 ) It is difficult to put...players on a "No Play" list that you meet in GK tournaments. Believe me he is on my "no play" list but meeting them in tournaments is unavoidable.
I will not resign a Drawn game just so he can advance to the next round.
Anyhow, the 50 move rule should be addressed as a possible automatic feature recognized by the GK system.
I am happy that the 3 fold repeition is recognized. Maybe that will be how this game ends but if not it will take at least another 20 moves [around move 120] unless he trades a piece. None of the pawns can be moved they are all locked. A trade will do nothing about the outcome except just maybe it will give me a slight advantage but it would still be a Draw.
