37 ( +1 | -1 ) denial of drawshmm i suppose the answer is probably ,just have patiencebut you see i am playing this game and i am anxious to get it over with. i believe it is a draw and have offered to draw a few imes already and my opponent does not accept. perhaps someone else can be more positive than i am.besides what do you do when your partner doesnt accept a draw you are sure of?
25 ( +1 | -1 ) BtwBlunders, it's considered rude/impolite to keep repeating a draw offer! Re: what do you do when your partner doesnt accept a draw you are sure of? Play on or resign :o))
59 ( +1 | -1 ) Well,you believe it's a draw, and maybe it's a draw, but what you believe is not necessarily what your opponent believes! And having a pawn plus and an active position he is fully justificated to play on. I could say which result will occur at master level; two masters will probably stop to play here and accept the draw/loss result. But at a lower level anything may happen, and when a player chose blunders as his nickname... his opponent may play on even being a Queen down :)
8 ( +1 | -1 ) I did not realize...that was an on-going game. If it is then Cairo is absolutely correct. Chuck
18 ( +1 | -1 ) agreed, the greatpolgar(i gave you a plus) if fact it's considered rude to offer a draw twice in a row in a game...e.g. if your opponent refuses the draw, it's rude to offer another one...let the opponent offer
14 ( +1 | -1 ) Offering twice...... /might/ be OK if there were a number of moves (at least 5? 10? who knows) between the offers.
Oh, who am I kidding. I know not of what I speak.
26 ( +1 | -1 ) i agreeall i will say is that i wouldnt accept a draw but this thread really shouldnt be here if you ask us to annotate it later after the game i am sure many people would like to help-but you have to wait until the game is over
13 ( +1 | -1 ) draw ..I offer once. If declined, I will play it out unless my opponet offers, at which time I consider his/her offer. That's all.
3 ( +1 | -1 ) good pointthat is how it should be done
17 ( +1 | -1 ) pawnThe stronger side offer draw... on general, surely opponent now sees ur frustration to get this over with.. go for the point with foam on mouthsides jejee
48 ( +1 | -1 ) thank yousi apologize i did realize that would be unfair for me to post up an ongoing game. i have offered a draw repeatedly but only after some odd moves. I suppose i was just looking for some justification to keep playing myself because if it is a lost position i will resign. I felt it was a draw and wanted to hear someone elses opinion.thank you all and i will return for the end result if anyone is interested.
p.s. thats it brunetti im changing my name to checkmate ! :-)
14 ( +1 | -1 ) ok i was wrong.now that i am done if someone will please tell me where i might have gone wrong in my attempt to draw my game?
34 ( +1 | -1 ) blundersI'm not sure it was possible for you to gain a draw in the latter stages of the game. I thought the game was already lost when you originally posted, although it was worth trying for a draw. Your rating is higher than mine so you probably shouldn't listen to me but I would look back earlier in the game to see where you went wrong.
6 ( +1 | -1 ) Blunders.64... Bb2?? was awful...64... Bh8 is necessary to stop the pawn from queening.
