Originally posted by MontyMooseThe FAQ does not cover the specific situation I've described. For EVERY "claim draw" situation on this site, you are required to make a move. This is how 9.2(a) works. For 9.2(b), you do not make a move, you just claim the draw, because you are claiming that the CURRENT situation is the 3rd repetition of a position, NOT the NEW position that would be created with YOUR next move. I am asking how this site deals with that scenario.
Under "Help" (above) see the FAQ.

Your opponent is being unsporting, and certainly more than a bit of an arse, but that doesn't automatically make it a draw.
Originally posted by HolyTCorrect. As far as I know 3-fold draw claims must include a move, not just the intention to make one to form the same position. From the FAQ: 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.

Originally posted by C J HorseThe Annoyance Rule may be handy when your opponent is deliberately annoying you. However, if the arbiter doesn't agree with you, you yourself in turn can be punished.
Surely that doesn't cover that sort of annoyance? I couldn't say "the way you pick up your pawns is annoying me, so I claim a draw". I thought that rule dealt with physical distractions, like tapping your fingers or rocking about in your seat?
Edit: Your edit was made while I was composing. Who was winning on material in that game?
Originally posted by MontyMooseYes, you understand correctly. That's what I am pointing out. BUT possibly the site engine is programmed like this: If you have a 9.2(b) situation (3rd rep of a position has just occurred), you click "claim draw" and make a move. Even if YOUR move doesn't create a 3rd repetition of a position, the site checks the PREVIOUS position also and awards the draw.
So basicly 9.2b does not exist her at RHP, correct?
