when is a game won? What mean is the point at which (assuming there is no more errors). That a game cannot be won.

Looking at a kasparov game against Karpov, they had planned the opening upto 19 moves and knew after Karpov had made a certain move that the game was won. The opening Theory was so indepth that when Karpov took a certain path, the game was won. So basically the game was won before they even sat at the table.

well the point where all responses are losing , being no gain acheived be it time , attack , position , material . once you lose the ability to acheive all of these .. the game is over .

The game is officially won... When your opponent resigns (knocking over his King) or when you call "Checkmate"...

...someone,somewhere... ...had a habit of resigning games by sweeping the pieces off the board,then breaking the chessboard over his opponents' heads.,if you developed a sudden headache while playing this guy,you would KNOW that you had a won game...

LOL... Yes Frodan, I do agree... If such a thing happened to me... I would believe at the very least that the game was over...

I beat this guy at my school, who was the No 1 player. One time I went a queen up and he smash all the pieces of the board and claimed the game was drawn as it wasnt completed.

I had a guy fall off his chair and clutch his throat during one match, he wanted the game to be drawn as he couldn't continue, but me being so mean demanded he forfeited.

One guy laughed at a move I made in a tournament, so I told him I don't know why you are laughing because I have mate in 7 moves. He spent ages trying to figure it out and eventually lost on time. I didnt have check mate and he tried to get me disqualified for cheating when he realised :)
