While most people are worried about chasing which I don't totally understand myself still, I'm going to keep pushing for automatic draw. Here is yet another game that I was in that clearly in a draw situation. Will show you screen shot of our situation and he refused my draw request. Yet we played for an hour and half and 1560 moves before i finally gave up. He had no miners, an open flag where he had to keep two of his captains near the flag to protect it from my scout. We both had a General and of course he can chase me all day around my bombs zone if he wanted too or around his.

To those players who feel I should lose game because I'm down in pieces, there are games in chess where the one player can only have King and yet the other guy has two pawns and Bishop but, can't force a win because his Bishop has no control over the queening square and the King is in front of the Pawns. I once was in a live chess game event back in high school where my opponent had a Rook Pawn and Knight and I had my King which was in the corner. He kept trying to get me to chase the Knight but, I remain firm on not leaving the corner to make sure that Pawn didn't become a Queen. After about a 1/2 hour the tourney director declared our game a draw and by not me giving up and resigning we won the team match by a 1/2 a point. My teacher praised my play as did my team for sticking it out.
Question I also want to ask, which one of us or both of us perhaps was a poor sport? Why should I accept a loss when he doesn't have the pieces to force a win on me? If he is a true silver player he should know the game was hopeless. I decided to just let him win even, though I could have played another 4-5 hours and for what to waste my time?
