    Try the 'offer draw' option - it's obviously a draw but it is one of the quirks of this site that it's not automatic.

    offer draw worked, but the site should reconize that the game was a draw.

    The site doesn't recognise draws through insufficient material, so it is up to the players to agree a draw, or wait until the 50 move rule.

    I agree the site should recognise drawn games it would save alot of time...

    My rating is in free-fall at the moment, so it's not really appropriate for me to comment on anyone else's play, but was there an opportunity for white to win this by playing a different move 51 ?
    K x g6 looks good to me. If the Rook takes the white pawn then 52 Rd8 is mate, any other move means that white can save the pawn.

    Or am I missing something?
