    please check this game out

    http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/playchess.php?gameid=41219

    and tell me whether it is supposed to be a draw or whether casper has
    won. It has always been my understanding of chess that if it is stale
    mate then it is a draw yet my only option now is to retire as a draw
    offer has been rejected!!!!

    Thx

    You are right, this is a draw. I will look into why the system as not
    recognised it as such as soon as possible.

    Thanks,

    I have to disappoint you. That game was not finished because of the
    en passant rule
    (http://www.redhotpawn.com/static/rules/enpassant.php).

    Your opponent moved P h7-h5
    So there was one possible move for you: P g5xh6.
    RHP was right to continue the game.
    I guess you both haven't been aware of that rule.
