In a 3 min. blitz match, am I allowed to use perpetual check to run down the clock? For example, say I have 30 seconds left and my opponent has 15 seconds left and I have my opponent in perpetual check. Can I just use perpetual check to run out the clock? Also, does it matter if I have a losing position or not?
Go for it, it's fine. If you repeat the same position though, your opponent can claim a draw by 3-fold repetition.
Many games are won this way.
Sure, if your opponent doesn't claim the draw after 3-move repetition.
Thanks, I did that, and my opponent claimed it violated the rules and said I should be banned.
Then your opponent is/was an idiot.
