    I am playing a game right now and my opponent (Dacus) is only making me move back and forth... I believe we are at 12 times now. How do I stop this without surrendering? Can you delete a game for me.. Please. he has upset me so I don't want to resign.

    if the game is going back and forth, you can do a claim draw option.. if it meets the rules of a draw, the game will auto end with a draw

    if you are going to get upset over that, you might as well stop playing chess.. its part of the game.

    I said upset, I meant to say annoyed. I don't care about losing. Just don't waste my time. Thanks for the helpful hint.

    I posted this in another thread, and have sent the same message to a few users who think this is dishonest or a form of cheating. It is neither.



    Being forced to keep making that same move is a GREAT chess tactic. You may have had a lead, but this user wants to force a draw. If he's forcing YOU to do the same thing over and over, he's got every right... and there is no need to 'delete' the game.

    It's a very important part of chess, and if you didn't know it... you might want to use it next time you are behind in a game.

    No game is won until you actually win it. If you are ahead and the other guy forces a draw... that is a good thing.

    3rd position repetition rule says draw.

    If claimed. If neither player claims the draw, it isn't one; once you move from a repeated position, you can't go back later and claim it was a draw then. (This as opposed to real errors such as overlooking an illegal move, which does have repercussions if discovered at a later stage.)

    Right.

    I rephrase:
    3rd position repetition rule says draw if it's immediately claimed.
