Bram:The problem of draws in chess (even at low levels) are a source of frustration. Personally, I like to know the outcome of a game when it's over; a draw feels like a waste of time.

That's one of the many reasons I like Go. Draws are rare in any circumstance, and with a non-integer komi, draws are nearly impossible. (Of course, komi's intended purpose is not to resolve draws; its purpose is to offset the advantage of the first move. Chess, to my knowledge, has no comparable system.)
