There are 5 most common ways to tie the chess game.
Insufficient checkmating material
This type of draw happens when none of the two players can make a checkmate. Which means that none of the players have enough moves or pieces to get a checkmate.
It happens if a chess position is repeated three times in a single game by both players. It means that a piece makes the same move back and forth three times. When both the players make these repetitive moves, the game is draw.
It happens when one player has a safe king, but it has no moves left because it is surrounded by the opponent. However, it is surrounded in a way that the opponent cannot attack its king.
Draw by agreement
This happens when one player offers the other player to draw the game. It happens when a game is already reaching the draw condition. The opponent can either make their next move or they can accept the draw offer.
50 moves rule
This happens when both players play 50 moves without moving a pawn or capturing a piece, any player can claim a draw. This kind of draw is least likely to happen
