Letter #31 - 2009
Can you give us an example of an absolute draw position?
Something that by just looking at the board may show an instant draw without having to go to the "50 moves without a Pawn move or capture" rule or any other long way to finally force a draw.
Perpetual check is not accepted since if the player giving check stops the checking maneuver and moves differently the game can continue.
The position has to be absolute.
The following diagram may illustrate an absolute draw position:
Hopefully, the above graphic may answer your question.
