You both blundered your way through the game so he has every right to think you may not be able to mate him with rook and king or that you may create a stalemate.
Originally posted by AlpineXazaxIn fact, to show how strong the Rook actually is, with K & R v K it is possible to force mate on any particular edge square that is desig-nated. Not of any practical use in play, but is an amusing and not very difficult puzzle.
i was in that situation once before(I was with the rook) and i just couildnt get the mate. I dont blame black for the draw offer, either he is testing you or he doesnt think you are capable of it, or he doesnt think it is possible. BTW, i lost my game due to a timeout.
