    One of my games says:
    - Move 32
    - Half Moves 3
    What does the second line mean?
    In this game it is 6 half-moves since anything was last captured.
    For reference I'm talking about game 11236404

    ...Sorry I think I've managed to work it out for myself
    The rule is the number of half-moves since a capture OR a pawn move.
    (I think we're allowed 50 of them, then it becomes a draw.)
    Issue closed I think.
