Think you mean 50 moves. Brainking does not automatically agree a draw but Fencer will make the game a draw if you request it and your opponent will not agree otherwise.

Chaosu 
Is this standard chess rule? I never heard about it, I thought I trapped king and that's it but I have to put it on check and trap at the same time. Interesting!

Justaminute 
Subject: Re:
Chaosu:
Stalemate is where the side to move (black here) can make no legal moves and the game is a draw.
The king can not move to the g file because all squares are covered by the queen. He can't move to H5 because it is covered by the queen and knight. He cant go to H3 because it is attacked by the bishop. So the king is not in check (so it is not check mate) but he has no legal moves so it is stalemate.

I'm chess noob so I don't understand, can somebody explain to me why this ended as stalemate? Screen Chess (Chaosu vs. francescolr)

Subject: Re: Millionaire Chess Open
ketchuplover: I have read some of the rules and prize categories. I like how they are trying to prevent draws by not allowing them except by asking the tournament director. This is almost identical to my solution, though they have a 30 move rule for some reason. I wish them well with this tournament. I wonder how many people will enter and how many of the top rated tournament champions of the world will enter?

the new men chess world champion Carlsen won an one side match with 3 wins and no loses. his FIDE rating is higher than the older man Anand
The women chess world champion Hou Yifan also won an one side match not long ago with the same result 3 wins no loses. her FIDE rating 2600 is higher than her opponent's 2500.
the FIDE rating is true one that reflect the true strength of the player. as to the BKR i doubt it would reflect the true strength of all the chess players here. what do you think abt the BKR?

Subject: re: chess world championship--PLAY FAST & UNDER X PRESSURE to win
the world champion lost two games to carlsen. it all happened after 40 moves were made. the old man could not find the correct move under the time pressure. how to play FAST and under X PRESSURE is the main factor to determine who's the better player as champion. you agree?

Subject: chess world championship
the chess rule will determined the outcome of the match. the world champion lost game 5 & game 6, it all happened Anand made mistake after move 40. In game 3 the champ also had a chance to win but missed it..
If rule of game is like in 1972 or before, after 40 moves the player could seal his move in an envelop that will be a different story.
of cause i'm not talking abt the chess rules @ BK.com.

Subject: re:Time per MOVE & Time per GAME
i found out that i have played Time per GAME i get a better result than Time per MOVE. i won more games when i accepted invitation with x per game. the reason is my style of playing the game, i always spent less x than my opponent, and respond almost right away after seeing my opponent's move. but my opponent was doing the opposite. they spent lots of x to make a move, not respond right away and logout after seeing my move to get help. they lack the ability to find move over the board. actually i'm playing handicap..i'm always in a waiting position.. i get annoyed and fed up..

Walter Montego:
i don't really care abt win or lose. every x i won a game here i don't feel happy or have achieved anything. you feel good only when you beat an opponent as strong as a lion. i did play@ itsyourturn.com before. so did you. i played the 28 hrs ladder chinese chess. every x i reached to the top as no.1. i just challenge the lowest opponent as i can, then i resigned the game to move him to the top. i did it until i pushed all the top guys with me to the bottom.
i also played a tournament game @ IYT, i resigned two won games to a player (i like him because he always resign a losing game without any further play) and i beat the other guy to help him be the winner of the tour....
i started to play chinese chess as a child, i had a goal to become a champion, i gave up when i found out that playing cc cannot make a living, and most the professional are uneducated and poor then.
i started to play chess in 1972 when Boby Fescher beat Sparsky to become the world champion. at that time, chess was played up to 40 moves then you could seal the move in an envelop to stop playing, and went back to the hotel sleep let the second to analyze to find the move...i was very surprise to know that rule, it is not allowed to do it in chinese chess, every cc game has to play to the end, also the cc player is playing alone with no help. chess now is changed no more the 40 move rule...
here is no such time control for 5 min per move. it is just my self discipline.
