then why did make the forum
Always. Three times the same position means there is a certain position and it is repeated twice. :D
Please post a game link so we can look at it. Thanks.
the rule is contradictive. it says "3 times the same position". but "threefold repetition" , or in German "dreifache Stellungswiederholung" means that the position must be on the board 4 times. first the "original position", which is repeated 3 times.
„The game is drawn upon a correct claim by the player having the move, when the same position, for at least the third time (not necessarily by a repetition of moves).“
