Where is the conditional move button/control/tab/whatever?

It doesn't currently exist. While it might be a cool additional feature to add to a site with unlimited programming resources, I don't foresee it being a high priority.

I don't want to play non tournament rules games. If you take one of my unrated invites, play tourney

Thanks for your response. I was 99.9% sure that there is no conditional move feature. I mostly was just wanting to have my suspicion confirmed (and add my vote for adding it).

Occasionally requested features (making a currently playing game private, for example) have been added in the past. Sometimes they end up being subscriber only features. On the other hand, if you have a conditional sequence of moves which lead to a sure win regardless of how a player responds, but that require different moves by you in order to win, you could let your opponent know via email or board comment. Maybe they'll resign. I.e. - if you block my open three on this side, I win by extending it to x# and then playing these two moves. If you block on the other side, I get my fifth capture by playing at y#.
