    Game 3809362 was declared a draw without my (black's) consent. There are only 12 1/2-moves recorded since the last pawn advance or poece exchanged. I'd like to know if there is a legitimate way for this unilateral declaration of a draw to be achieved.

    Never mind. There were three repetitions of the same position in a row.

    I think your opponent still has to claim the draw ; it's not automatic is it?


    Plus they don't have to be "in a row".

    There is no magic here.

    After 54. Kc4, Pucucu pressed Claim draw and Submit move.

    Ask him/her.

    well in live tournaments i have experienced that the player hwo wishes to claim a draw must claim it himself. But many chess programs the draw is automatic just as if it had been stalemate

    Ya gotta claim a draw by 3 move repetition on this site, or just keep playing. As it should be.
