    How could this game be a draw?

    Game 11135293

    The question is why you accepted that draw? Perhaps it was a mistaken offer? Slip of the click?

    I didn't accept a draw.

    Games have to be 3 moves to "count" if I read the TOS correctly, so I am not sure that it matters. It is rather bizarre.

    Ask your opponent if he accepted a draw?

    My opponent replied that he received a draw offer from me. He thought I had some sort of trouble and accepted. Trouble is, I didn't offer one. Couldn't have. We had both only made one move. Radio button doesn't show "offer draw" until after the second move.

    correction...I just checked a game I have that is at 4 moves...no "draw offer" button yet. Don't know when it changes.

    Blame me.

    I have a run a piece of code that declares all 1.d4 d5 games a draw.
    It's to avoid Colle's, London Systems, QGD's/ QGA's and the Exchange Variation.
    But most of all the Slav.

    Before stopping the game it does scan the Black player's rep to see
    if they play the Tarrasch. If so then the game is allowed to continue.
    (if neither player has an IQP after 8 moves it's declares it a draw.)

    Should the White player be a Blackmar Gambiteer it also stops the game.
    If you want to Gambit a pawn in the opening then do it properly with
    the King's Gambit, Scotch Gambit or even the Danish.

    Now stop fart assing about with 1.d4 and 1..d5 and play some proper Chess.

    Bear in mind you can only offer a draw with your move. So the absence of the offer draw button may be connected with that.

    Yes, I have looked at a game with only one move made (by my opponent). I have the facility to offer a draw. Looks like the OP definitely clicked the button by mistake.
