[Quote from: "Comte de MonteCristo"]What we really would like to know is whether one can offer a draw after one has been fairly and squarely checkmated?



A draw offer (in such a scenario) is not possible, but if you know where to look there is a discreet 'offer a bribe' button where the result of a game can be altered.




Is there another button for obtaining the IM and GM titles by a bribe? It would seem that this was the button used by GM Alexandru Crisan.

Perhaps GM Crisan has violated the FIDE rule against "Chess Doping", and maybe the Department of Criminal Chess will conduct the required brain test monitoring.

The resign button is available to either player once the board is set up. ... If one of the players doesn't want to play the game, why would they not be permitted to resign at the earliest opportunity?

Since the game officially ends by rule at checkmate, then the answer is no.

My original post 'Duke' was about how, not why.....his reasons, as you say, are his own.
I didn't know that the resign button was available and 'active' for Black prior to commencement of game!

I would have thought that the Chessworld machine would have rejected the resignation as a 'not legitimate' request......just like it would as you mentioned for a 'claim draw' on move 1!!




The resign button is available to either player once the board is set up. (There is no 'abort' button in tournament games as there are in non tournament or team games). Not sure 'claim draw' and 'resign' is a viable comparison. A claim draw attempt on move 1 is indeed 'not legitimate' but what are your reasons for viewing a resignation as not legitimate? - If one of the players doesn't want to play the game, why would they not be permitted to resign at the earliest opportunity?
