None of the non-chess-specific sites are mentioned: BK, GT, IYT.

ketchuplover: Site visits? I looked at their chart, but I cannot figure out what the columns mean. They do not have a legend explaining the column headers, and I'm not very good with abbreviations when I do not know the subject very well.

ketchuplover: I am doubting their accuracy. Perhaps they've never heard of BrainKing? Or maybe they personally dislike this site?
Or does 109,000 members mean nothing? What criteria do they use for ranking a site for be good for Chess?

ThunderGr:
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?
