    is there anyway for someone who has a king and a knight to win against someone who only has a king?

    Drawn.

    K + N vs K is drawn as long as there are no pawns and nothing else.

    K + 2N vs K is a draw.

    Same with K + N vs K.

    thats what I thought but my opponenet won't accept the draw so we just keep playin, and it is just one knight. do i have to wait for 100 half moves to claim the draw?

    Sac your knight! Then it will be K vs K and he will finally see the light!

    Haha, use your timeout to the maximum and prolong the game as long as you can!

    O you're a non-sub as well.

    Hm.... What to do, what to do.

    Yes but I believe the cirumstance ivan....was mentioning was not the same one you are mentioning.

    I think that he believes that 2N + K vs K can be forced.
