    This was on the checkmate page, it caught my eye because of the bishop, knight and king mate. When I looked at the details the game was a 21 day move format, it took just over 5 years to complete. Patience is a virtue.

    And Black could have claim a draw on move 130 due to the 50 move rule.

    Never been involved in 50 move draw on here.
    Does a wee box pop up to tell you can claim a draw?

    That would have been a right scunner after 5 years. A draw.
    White then heads for the canal carrying a breeze block with a
    'Goodbye Cruel World' note in his pocket.

    I think you'd have to claim the draw, that's the way it works with the repetition rule anyhow.

    Hi PK

    thought that but does a wee box get highlighted - I'll have a look at FAQ.

    Edit:
    "No piece capture or pawn movement has occurred for over 50 consecutive
    moves (100 half moves). Therefore the game has not progressed and a
    draw may be claimed by either player during their next move."

    I only have one GIP at the moment - A Rook Ending v SG and he has 40+ other games on the go. 🙂

    It's his move so I cannot see my options. I'll have a look when it's my turn.

    you won't get the message. This would be deemed outside assistance...

    btw Is the rejection of illegal moves outside assistance?

    White obviously was not in a hurry or he would have mated with the Q rather than forcing black to take it.
