Is it possible that a draw take place without confirmation, only e-mail that it had taken place ? No cpmplaint intended in this instance. I was just inquiring if it could happen cause otherwise the draw could not be acceptable to me in another circumstance. The game indeed was drawish and my opponent was higher rated,. Thank you Wayne

Hello Wayne.

You mean if a draw can happen without offer AND acceptance by both players ? Two cases...

1/ The referee grants a draw (according to rules).

2/ A stalemate position automatically generates a draw offer.

Best wishes.

gad !, I am terribly sorry. I have two reactions: 1) I am very glad that the program draw logic is sound without a crack. 2) I am terribly embarrased, I just cannot remember asking. As I said tho the draw was very appropriate, And I thank my opponent who is a stronger player than I for accepting. My best to both you and He. Wayne
