The rules of chess
Drawing and resigning
Resign and draw proposals
A player can resign the game, which means that he has lost and his opponent has won.
After making a move, a player can propose a draw: his opponent can accept the proposal (in which case the game ends and is a draw) or refuse the proposal (in which case the game continues).
Repetition of moves
If the same position with the same player to move is repeated three times in the game, the player to move can claim a draw. (When the right to make a certain castling move is lost by one of the players between positions, then the positions are considered to be different.
50 moves rules
If there are have been 50 consecutive moves of white and of black without
then a player can claim a draw.
