Originally posted by utherpendragonIve seen it happen over insufficient material as well, such as king, knight vs king automatically in online blitz. i imagine in otb that would be by agreement. never heard of this 50 move rule though outside of agreeing to it before a friendly game starts
a draw can result from a stale mate,from a 3 time repetition of position,perpetual check,or by agreement

Oh, it's a FIDE rule 5.2 (e):
"The game may be drawn if each player has made at least the last 50 consecutive moves without the movement of any pawn and without any capture."
This rule makes it possible to claim draw, not only offer draw, at RHP.
Originally posted by karoly aczelNo a draw is claimed if no pawn moves are made and no captures are made. Given that a lone king doesn't own pieces this means that if the mater doesn't have pawns he has to successfully mate in 50 moves or ironically sacrifice material back to restart the counter (which I don't think ever happens).
so even if there are other pieces a draw can still be claimed if no other pieces are moved and the king moves 50 times?
