When both White and Black cannot win in a game, the result is a Draw.
There are 6 ways in which a game can become a Draw.
1. Insufficient Material
- When both White and Black cannot checkmate each other.
Example - K vs K, K+B vs K, K+N vs K
- No check
- No other possible move
3. Perpetual Check
- Continous checks
- No Checkmate
4. 3 Times Repetition
- If any position is repeated 3 times continously (photographic repetition), a Draw can be claimed.
5. 50 Move Rule
- Set of 50 moves (1 white move + 1 black move = 1 move) does not have any Pawn moves and does not have any captures, a Draw can be claimed.
6. Mutual Agreement
- Both players agree to a Draw.
