    I was in a good position, but my email said my opp had taken my offer of draw but I don't recall offering one (I was playing via phone so could have hit wrong button!)

    Draw due to three fold repetition?

    Game 10376912

    If I looked at the right game this can't be true. The last move was taking a piece so the position can't have arisen earlier.

    In fact I think you might have inadvertently hit the "offer draw" button.

    Thanks, I thought I was going a bit nuts! 🙄

    Damn, I was in a decent position as well! Note to self: take more care when playing by phone!

    A "decent" position in the same way that Fischer was a "decent" chess player!

    I'm sure he couldn't hit the accept button fast enough 😛
