Is there a location where I can get a count of the moves made while game is in progress?🙂
Originally posted by Duncan ClarkeThe main time you see a 50-move draw is in an endgame that's tough to win in time (such as mate with only an N and B), or at all [such as opposite-color Bishops], when one side just can't bear to admit they can't win anymore, after being better/winning for most of the game.
Quite often there will be a 3 times repetition of position before the 50 rule move kicks in.
Originally posted by MarinkatombI use this method too. Most of the time I can't spot a third repetition until it's too late to take advantage of it.
I have found an easy way to do it is to just select "claim draw" everytime you submit a move. That way you won't miss a threefold repetition before you reach the 50...
