And forgive my ignorance but if I move and then he moves does that count as a move or as two moves?
I'm playing a game against a much, much stronger player and I got lucky and got the advantage, now I'm worried I won't be able to close fast enough.
a move by you then a move by him counts as one move.
Don't forget if a pawn moves or there's a capture the clock gets reset to 0 ... but yes, he needs to claim a draw and if it's a correct claim it's then a draw, i.e. he doesn't need you to agree.
