21 ( +1 | -1 ) Is this not a forced draw?White king on f2, black king on g4, black pawn on h4, with black to move. My opponent declined my draw offer respectfully. I can't see black queening that pawn for the life of me...only a stalemate.
21 ( +1 | -1 ) Requesting advice from other people regarding an ongoing game is equal to cheating, both according to the letter AND the spirit of GK rules. Please do not do it again. It's YOUR game, so just play it out.
25 ( +1 | -1 ) it doesn't matter…whether the game is at GK or not. It's still cheating. And no one is accusing you jean_marc of anything. Regardless of the answers one gets it is not right to ask advice about an ongoing game. Perhaps tombro was unaware.
30 ( +1 | -1 ) I'm not sure tombro was asking for adviceTombro's question seemed to be more along the lines of the thread we some times see here: "Why is my opponent wasting my time by not resigning when a queen down?", in this case, it's "Why is my opponent wasting my time by not agreeing to a draw when it's just going to be stalemate in a few moves anyway?".
12 ( +1 | -1 ) I agree with gambitnutIt's just that there are no arbiters on gameknot to judge positions are they draws or not...

30 ( +1 | -1 ) Itis not that difficault IMHO, if your obey the rules say:
Never discuss an ongoing/live game, regardless what, but doing it after the game is finish, is really good stuff :-))

117 ( +1 | -1 ) Now we can talk about it......as my opponent agreed to my draw offer. He reviewed the position overnight and conceded it would lead to stalemate. No moves were made since my original post. I was not asking for move advice, as the position was a foregone conclusion. This was my first and last post here on any such position topics, as I do not wish to offend anyone. Perhaps the newer players can learn from positions and situations such as this that the game is not over. My opponent's original reply to my draw offer was: "Resistance is futile...I respectfully decline your draw offer." I looked and looked at this classic postition, as I just recently drew a game in this very position with a higher ranked player here at GK. Here is the draw game in question I just finished with hang2man: [[White "Tom"] [Black "hang2man"] [Result "1/2-1/2"]
