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

  • #601

    I am so totally winning that my opponent can force a draw, if he wants to hurt my winning feelings.

    The title of this thread has has to be one of the dumbest in the history of Chess.com.

    Stick around, there will be worse.

    It's the game.  It's the rules.  If you can find a perpetual check, you're drawn.  What's the issue?

    ... ummm... if they have a perpetual check available, then they aren't losing. They are drawing. By definition.

         I think I be winning...my opponent thinks he be drawing by perpetual...I think I better do more thinking about whether I think am winning.

    You don't win chess just because you have the advantage. You have to actually keep it and do something with it. Your opponent won't just roll over and die because he's theoretically worse.

    I managed to snatch a draw by perpetual check with my rooks not too long ago. The escape square were guarded by pawns. I was a knight and three pawns down. This was the chat between us:

    - We can play on but it's a draw.
    - It's not a draw. You can put your castle somewhere else. You have other moves, I don't.
