    I just played a game in which my opponent and I went 50 moves without a pawn move or a capture. isn't that a draw? is there any way to claim this on ICC? cause i just lost on time. here is the game.

    i dropped my queen for no reason and ended up in a QvR endgame.

    You should have clicked draw if it was indeed meeting that condition.
  3. 05 Mar '07 02:00
    oh, well it obviously meets that criteria. i'll try that next time there is a situation like that. i was in time trouble so i was just trying to move really fast.

    i thought the "autoflag" mode is on by default...

    His concern is about the 50 move rule. He assumed that meeting its criteria results in an automatic draw. This isn't the case.

    There is a help channel in ICC specifically for these types of questions BTW.
