    If not already.
    How about after three consecutive moves have it be a draw.

    not sure what you mean.

    if you mean draw by repition (i.e. exact same position appears three times in one game) then it can be claimed by selecting the "claim draw" option (i think).

    Yes, all games should end in a draw after the first 3 moves.

    Making as little sense as ever.

    If I read, not what you write, but what you mean to say, I'll answer like this:

    The reason there is not an automatic draw after thre identical positions is that it is easy to forget this. but if you discover you can salvage your game by the three identical position rule, you have to claim the draw in order to get the draw. The other option is not to claim it if you rather believe you can win the game.

    If you have a winning game, you don't want the game to be a automat draw due to the three identical position rule, would you?

    When the position is reached for the third trime, do both players get a chance to claim the draw?

    Only the one with the move can claim the draw (if I know my rulebook correctly), then and then only.

    If when it is your move the current position has been repeated three times then you can claim a draw. You can also claim a draw when it is your move if you can make a move that will mean a position has occured three times.
