Let’s say I remain alone with my King only and the other player has his King, a Rook, and a Knight, my question is: how many moves do I have to force a draw?

Dear viewer,

Your opponent can have up to 50 moves to force a mate. After 50 moves, the game should end in a draw.

The rules of Chess state the following:

5.5 The game may be drawn if the last 50 consecutive moves have been made by each player without the movement of any Pawn and without the capture of any piece. (See Article 9.3)
