50 moves rule

50 moves rule

Is the 50 moves rule effective (50 moves without striking any figure or moving a pawn) - as in FIDE or ICCF rules? I can't find a hint in our rules.

50 moves rule (better wording)

Is the 50 moves rule effective (50 moves without striking any piece or without moving any pawn) - as in FIDE or ICCF rules (draw)? I can't find a hint in our rules.

Hello Wolfgang,

look at the Playing rules (http://ficgs.com/membership.html#playing, 11.3.a.)

Hello Heinz-Georg, think you for that! So FICS has another special rule, different to ICCF or FIDE!

Hi Wolfgang !

Yes, quite ridiculous to adjudicate a draw while tablebases show a mate in 63 moves IMO... So I broke the rule (with great pleasure :))
