    Is there anyway to find out how many times I have previously played a current opponent? Also a quick way to find out the status of those completed games?

    What I would like to see is a box of some sort that I can click on and tell me I have previously played this opponent eight times and won three games, drawn 2 and lost three times or whatever the stats are.

    I am not sure if there is such a feature or a way to find out without having to scroll though my nine hundred completed games? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Thanks. As many games as I have played one would think I would have noticed those blue tabs before, but it's like I am seeing them for the first time.

    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 same position occurrs in a game 3 times you can click the claim draw link on the right hand side of the board.

    from the faqs;
    Third repetition of a position. If any identical position appears three times during a game, then the game can be claimed as a draw. Please note that each repetition must be identical with regards to en passant and castling availability. A draw can only be claimed along with a move that contributes to a repetition. Claiming after the repetition has occurred is not possible, unless the same position can be repeated again on a future move.

    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.
