    can anyone advise if there is a rule as to how many moves a king has when on it's own at the end of a game, before a draw is called

    From the FAQ:

    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.

    but if ur opponent has only a king too, u dont have to wait. Just claim the draw!

    thanks lads, i have 1 pawn plus a bishop and king, he only has king and doesn't seem to want to resign, should have enough time though, when i was a kid i think we used to play 20 moves

    okay the guy finally resigned. I was gonna say you should try queen the pawn and force a checkmate.

    Hi

    Just played over the game in question.

    Quite a game - White missed a cracking mate in 2 starting with a Queen sac.

    Black missed a mate in one allowing the game to go for another 30 moves.

    CHECK ALL CHECKS
