Repetition Rule Is not used properly here

Q_VON

I had a game recently where I was one move away from checkmate and the game was drawn because my very unsportsmanlike opponent kept checking me and I purposefully moved my king in different ways to avoid repetition but it was still drawn WTF!!!!!! https://www.chess.com/live/game/4053537631 This is not acceptable.

There is nothing wrong. Moves 44, 46, and 50 had the same positions, with the same player on the move each time; the draw by triple repetition of position was valid.

The official FIDE rule addresses the triple repetition of POSITION, not of moves.

I must suspect that your problem is that you don't understand the rule properly. Chess.com is doing it right.

In chess you need to checkmate your opponent while ensuring that he cannot perpetual check you into a draw by repetition.  This rule has been in place for over 100 years. You should apologise to your opponent who acted entirely properly.

It is not unsportsmanlike to keep checking you . . . If he stopped checking, you would mate him in one move! . . . A DRAW is better than a loss . . .
