    Hmm it has to be Game 3997555 I offered my opponent a draw around move 23 and he replied saying "I agree but lets see in about 4 to 5 moves". 4 to 5 moves turned out to be 40 to 50 moves as he was only playing for time. Where are those clowns who complain about short draws and tell me any possible improvement?

    I presume he had a plan.

    Hope you (as a non subscriber) will give up.

    Are you sure there were no 3-fold repetitions in there as I couldn't be bothered to check.

    No kidding I sent feedback over what I thought were 3 move repetitions

    >I pressed claim draw while making the move Bd8 which means Rg1 Bd8 has been repeated 3 times (move 38,43,49). The system ignores this however.

    The admins replied :-

    Please note that it is the position that needs to occur for the third
    time rather than the move sequence. Each of the three positions must be identical and with the same player to move.

    Wow that's a lot.
    I guess it must be kind of frustrating when your opponent plays on slowly in a clearly drawn game, eh z00t?

    Can you imagine playing such a game at 28/28? That's why the 1/0 is my favourite. You can guess I would like to ship a box jellyfish to the guy I was playing to "thank him".

    If you didnt want a draw why allow a closed Caro?
