3 fold repetition Does the gameknot engine automatically detect 3 fold repetition and end the game in a draw automatically?

Yes, gameknot recognizes 3 fold repetition. It also will draw in a dead position,
where no one can possible checkmate the other.

It doesnt automatically call a threefold repetition a draw one of the two players has to choose the draw that the site offers them automatically

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

Anyhow, I will do what I have to do. :-)

Chucků I would think that anyone capable of playing you to a draw would also be able to recognize a
drawn position when they come across one.

I can 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.

Best wishes

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.
