  1. But number 1 is included in number 2 and number 4 is included in number 3

  2. Insufficient material isnt just not enough material to force a checkmate, its not enough material to deliver checkmate. Ie. One could theoretically deliver mate with king and bishop vs king and knight (or bishop, but it must be opposite colored), but it would require the opponent essentially trying to get checkmated and couldnt be forced.

  3. Perpetual check should fall under the threefold repetition rule. Seems redundant.

  4. How about timeout vs insufficient material

  5. I had another type of draw, I ran out of time but the other person had insufficient material and I had M5.

  6. Running out of time vs material
    Also draw by SOME rules.

  7. There's also one when you run out of time, but you opponent has only king left

  8. Even when I think victory is within my grasp Ill manage the stalemate

  9. Number 1 and 2 are the same though, no? I mean, the reason perpetual check if a draw is because it always leads to repetition.

  10. I remember i was playing against a highly rated guy mind me i am was a kid of 9 years old. Somehow i gave ny best performance that day and in the end our repeation was of like 10-15 moves. As one change in pattern whoever makes looses a piece. And we decided to draw one of my best games ever

  11. i literally knew every one so why did i stay

  12. There is also the “dead position”

  13. by the way, how much material needed to checkmate?

  14. Perpetual check = draw?! Not right. I just had this happen against the bot and I felt cheated.

  15. You forgot about when you flag someone with only a king left it will be a draw

  16. Just for my own sanity, perpetual check and threefold repetition is the same right? Just so the list has 5 things right?

  17. number six is switching your knights by basically making them do a marathon

  18. Isn't repetition and perpetual check the same fucking thing?

  19. Where is time vs insufficient material

  20. There is also timeout vs insufficient material

  21. Also no time v insufficient material is a draw

  22. In the 50 moves draw they need to agree for a draw but for 75 move draw it's automatically a draw that's there differences

  23. There is one more: locked position. E.g. only pawns and kings, and the pawns block each other and the kings from getting to each other.

  24. 75 move, same as 50, but the players choose to not draw on 50, on 75 it's forced, you're welcome.

  25. I saw Hikaru get a draw on Smirnov.

  26. Out of time vs insufficient material is also one

  27. There are 9 total draw the two you didn’t mention is depth position and red flag

  28. There's a rule where sometimes if a pawn is next to a pawn, they can still take and move diagonally for one move called "En passant"

  29. Timeout vs insufficient material is kind of a 6th way.

  30. What the hell is a stalemate… I think stalemate is a checkmate only why draw i don't get it

  31. And number 6 when u ran out of time and your opponent only has a king

  32. At number first actually you could just take that officer away.

  33. "What?!! how is he so smart!!?"
