gmiller: 2 kings -- no draw

In this game two kings try to mate each other but redrook seems to believe in a better position.
Could you please draw the game. I offered draw several times since it was clear. But redrook denies accepting draws.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Gregor,

surely a draw is more than justified for each side (and it´s honorful for you to have claimed it), but in my eyes the claim should be your opponnent´s duty:
- he is significantly down in time (in your game),
- he has refused your earlier offers,
- he has lost more than 10% of his games by timeouts,
- a closer look to his current games shows that he again has time trouble in a handful of his games (all kind of positions: superior, inferior, drawn).

I admit that it is fair (of you) to offer a draw (and I would have done the same), but in regard to the times remaing it is his turn to accept it and/or re-offer it later - in case he realizes the situation.

All the best to your games

I can´t find the word "checkmate" anywhere in my post.
My focus is more in the direction of "time trouble", "timeout", "time forfeits" and such.

Bro your implying that even if the game is a stalemate draw or whatever an opponet should take the cheap draw half point or whatever. To me if the game is far behind reach either resign or draw and move on. There are and will be plenty more games to play but to do something like what he did that's uncool. Just my view I may be misunderstanding you.

Yes, I am afraid so. Sorry for my bad English, I am no native speaker.

Hi, chess fellow, I'd like to know what Reservation are you from?

As for me, I am from the Republic of Chile, a South American Pacific-border long country.

Thanks for your information. I sincerely think people playing standard Chess here "all we are is just dust in the wind" if we cannot evolve to other chess variants, such as Chess960 and Alice Chess, offered at http://www.SchemingMind.com

Dear Mr Miller:... This is My Opinion...
This Game is Still going ON???... g1104826443
Only Two Kings left, Should be an "Auto Stale-Mate/Draw"...
Other then that, Days Left for a Move Seems to be the Only way the Game can End; with a Loss for the Player that Just Can't Continue moving a GD King Forever...
We can't have a Clock or Move Limit; Day's Left for a Move, is the Best...
Thanks///Pagsco... g1104826443

No, that game is over, the participants agreed to a draw as soon as it reached K vs K. I haven't implemented this as automatic because it doesn't come up that often, most players agree to a draw on their own.

His timeouts are on purpose. When he is in a lost possition instead of resigning he lets time run out. The guy is a mental case
