To GNU-Chess Bug Reporter,

Dear Sir,

Hello... I am Roland Zelhof, a programmer from Syria studying in Cyprus, Lately I managed to found some issues that might need to be taken into consideration within the GNU-Chess: (glChess 2.22.3) under Fedora OS 9 - Copyright 2005-2008.

Brief Overview of my Background:
*I am an active chess player of rating (2000) and a computer scintist studying now in (Nicosia) for my BS Degree. Mainly, i am interested in C++ and Bash Programming migrating from HTML, _javascript_, and ActionScript 2.0/3.0.

The Bug:
*Apparently, the (Threefold Repetition Rule) is not working on any mode under (glChess 2.22.3). Please see the attachment and take a precise look at moves from 11 to 59...(N:e4c3 - Q:d1d2) followed by (N:c3e4 - Q:d2d1). Technically, It should end after three moves with a (draw) rather than a (win).

Some Suggestions for later versions:
*The idea of Auto-Promotion option is not recommended because many times chess players tend to choose the type of promotion according the corresponding positions of the pieces. Switching each time and changing the preferences is somehow irritating for active chess players. In addition, I was not able to find anything like a take-back option. In a non-rated game, the take-back option is essential especially for studying complex positions and testing the Chess Engine. However, apart from those, it is a great game with no fatal problems or crushes. The Chess Engine by itself can be considered as a masterpiece. Thanks

Thanks a lot, for such a great game and work... I really support your community, and i believe that the future is yours.

*Hope you take my message into consideration and reply me back accordingly (if possible).

My Best Regards,

Yours Sincerely,
Roland Zelhof
