    1. You can't castle because the king passes through check....moron.

    2. It is a legal move called en passant learn the rules first jackass.

    3. Draw by stalemate stupid.

    4. 50 move draw rule starts over if a pawn is moved or piece captured. Idiot.

    5. You're rating went down after a win because you're a twit and deserve to lose points every time you play.

    6. You can't mate with just a king and a bishop, or king snd knight, or even two knights against bare king so take the damn draw. Your opponent should be allowed to shoot you for refusing it.

    7. Your opponent was not cheating. You lost because you suck at chess.

    Please read the entry in
    'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two_knights_endgame', (4th-5th lines) : -

    " .... a king and two knights can not force checkmate."

    Why should we shoot Sam the Spam?

    'force' is different than 'can't'. You can get a mate, but you can't force it.

    It's worth giving a try, no sense in resigning without at least making an effort (unless your playing a high rated player).

    Once you realize you're not going to force it, you can resign.
