What do you feel about players that do perpetual checks when they are losing?

    Going through the link works fine using IE but that's not what I was saying - it's the pgn that wasn't working for me

    Imagine you playing for the world championship and 0.5 point make out for you to hold the title; now you are in a situation of perpetual or losing, your choice. Probably you will pick the perpetual check.

    Now, a direct answer: it is totally legal; the time and opponent caught me iinto a perpetual check to defend his game, i do not blame him but myself that wasn't cautious enough to prevent the perpetual.

    It wasn't a PGN. It was a diagram posted using the diagram button on this forum. Indeed it was this one (diagrams can be shared between multiple posts. When this is the case, edits of a diagram in one post are seen in the other posts).

    Sometimes if I am seriously winning and my opponent has not resigned, I will throw in some (or many) checks to annoy them.

    Fascinating! Such an inlogical topic with so many replies. If one side has a perpetual chess the other side has a draw at the best option.

    Personally when I'm seriously winning I prefer to demonstrate that I'm seriously winning by actually winning the game.

    Yes indeed, so many inlogical comments ...

    If you are "winning" then you should not allow a circumstance in which they can get a draw. If you allow a circumstance where they can draw while you are "winning" then you are not actually winning.

    I can imagine that high level players actually watch out for perpetuals when they have an advantage. And on the flip side, high level players who are losing would try to setup a perpetual to save a draw.
