Nice diagram but why do you believe it's a pattern?
As for the chess game - the diagram doesn't have a provision for a draw by agreement which assumes a negotiation between the players.

Sure, there is no way to announce "draw" or "defeat" by a player in the diagram. I consider this functionality as a home work for curios people. Now you are obliged to do this :)

I wanted to keep clear the diagram's "main line" - an independent coordination of two players with opposite interests. Other examples are negotiations about product's price, conditions of a contract, etc. So, it is a pattern.
