    Here we go again. No comments on ongoing games.
    Your oponant has the right to play on untill you put him in checkmate.

    is it true that 2 knights and a king can't checkmate?

    You know he's in an "absolutely hopeless position", so obviously you know that already, eh?

    Enjoy the game.

    that's his claim as to why he won't resign

    ragnorak..he can't win with just a king, huh..

    strange, when I tried to load the pgn into a chess program it got stuck after move 78
    is the site wrong, or my program?

    Indeed, amazing how some folk are... they think they get to decide if their opponent resigns.

    This is a joke, right? Your opponent is not resigning because it's a draw......you do not have mating material.

    My opponents won't resign when I want them to, either. Even worse, they don't make the moves I want them to make. It's the only thing holding me back from being a great player.

    You're not very clever uh?

    Let me know if you ever will be able to checkmate him.

    Actually, it's suprising how many people are not aware that a king and two knights can't force mate.
