Is it the same with a 'DRAW'? In other words, if N is losing to X and has absolutely no way of winning or rebounding, can N simply hit 'DRAW' without X getting the chance to 'accept' or 'reject'? This happened to me a few months back. It seems that if N recognized he/she was losing and had no way of rebounding, the proper thing to do would be to select 'resign' and not 'draw' as the latter indicates that neither player can possibly win (as in the case of each player having only their King).
When I requested a draw awhile back, the draw would not register until my opponent accepted it, which is the way a draw works when playing chess offline. A resignation, however, should not require the approval of my opponent--if I quit because my case is hopeless, I concede defeat. Should I require that my opponent consent to me giving him the win?
There is also the special case of draw known as a stalemate, which happens when one player has no legal moves available but is NOT in check.
