    I have a game in progress where it has ended with each of us having a Knight only but my opponent continues to play on ignoring my game drawn notifications. Will the game naturally expire after so many moves resulting in a draw?
    Thanks.

    You can hit claim draw and it ends game if no mating mating material

    However the possibility of a helpmate is considered.
    A threefold Repetition also counts..

    It is possible to have a help mate...not probably but possible.

    Threefold Repetition or the 50 move rule will apply sooner or later.
