    Depends of how many pieces your opponent have.
    Does he also have a king only? Or doesn't have enough pieces to mate you? Then claim the draw.
    Does your opponent have pieces so he can mate you whenever he wants to but doesn't of some obscure reasons, then look for three identical positions, and then, claim the draw.
    Or just go on playing and hope for his time-out, skull him, and get the win for free...

    Our start counting off 50 moves if no pawns are being moved and you're not capturing anything.

    The site developers have implemented it according to proper chess rules that you much claim such a draw. It does not automatically occur.

    I am suprised someone with your rating doesnt know that! However you are not allowed to discuss a game thats in progress, you would be hoping for your opponent to blunder basically.

    I think you misunderstood the question. I think he asked a site rools related question. Not a question about the rools of chess.

    If you ask for assistance, it helps if you don't appear to be rude.

    Firstly I was attempting to help by telling you that discussion of games underway is against the rules, I did so because you didnt seem to know this and I thought I would mention it before the almighty mods come along.

    Secondly I misunderstood your precise point due to your english, my apologies for that, the rules state 50 moves without a capture or a pawn movement can force the draw, but you will have to claim the draw, it will not draw automatically.

    Thirdly, and most importantly, rudeness is unnecessary "listen to that and listen good" it will stand you in good stead for the future.

    EDIT

    Lastly, you cannot hope to survive more than about 10 moves tops in the game stated below.

    I don't think he asked specifically of this game. He was very general in his words.

    He was simply asking how RHP works, how draw works here. He's been away for two years, and RHP has changed a bit since then.

    I don't think he was asking about the draw rule, and not specifically about this game. But this is only my opinion.
