    isn't this one a stalemate? does white have to hit the claim draw for this to happen? am I missing something here? if it is a stalemate, i thought they were automatic ... game id number is 10874641

    Perhaps we should wait until the game finishes to discuss it.

    ok then obviously i am missing something, i dont see how white can move, but obviously i am missing something then ... so you are saying simply that it is NOT a stalemate?

    I am withholding all commentary until the game is finished.

    Dougo, maybe you've had a similar misunderstanding before.

    doug, its a stalemate, unless white just clicks offer draw so the title of the game ends draw and not stalemate even though its the same lol............. are there less points for a stalemate than an agreed draw??

    Are you looking at the board upside down?

    This post made me go back and look at other threads doug989 has made in similar situations, and there is a common theme.

    In that context, the original thread post is equal parts hilarious and sad- setting aside the OP's blatant disregard for forum posting guidelines.

    Truly, this post is a work of Art!

    OMG, white just moved! So, he had a move after all!
