    50 i think

    but he can win

    edit: from the FAQ:
    ''No piece capture or pawn movement has occurred for over 50 consecutive moves (100 half moves). Therefore the game has not progressed and a draw may be claimed by either player during their next move.''

    i dont see that game? not public?
    i only see a game where the opponent has a queen left, then he can definitialy win.
    but allso king + tower VS king = win for the colour with the tower.

    Does tower=rook?
    K and R vs. K is an easy win for the side with the rook.

    K v K+R is an automatic win. Set up any position that is not a stalemate or the weaker side can capture the R on the move and it is a win 100% of the time.

    zozozozozozo ...

    I thought it was hard. And then I was taught that it isn't.

    It wasn't pretty
