Thank you for this great program. I am currently developing a new chess engine for it, and am having a question regarding how the protocol handles draws that need to be claimed (3 fold and 50 rep).

According to the FIDE rules, both draw by 3 fold and draw by 50 rep has to be claimed by either player, and is not automatic like a stalemate.

I understand how the engine can claim a draw by sending a result, but I don't see how the user can claim a draw (as opposed to offering a draw in which case the engine can decline).

Can someone please enlighten me on this matter?

Thank you very much
Matthew Lai
