    Hi, had a question about stalemates and whether the 13 move rule is implemented in these games. If I remember correctly, if a player has only his king left of the board, the opposing player has only 13 moves to checkmate the lone king.

    Also, was wondering if there is a chess rules webpage or resource that redhotpawn uses.

    There's no such thing as a 13 move rule.The game is drawn after 50! moves without a capture,pawn move or checkmate.
