Perpetual check Ok, so if you can manage to put your opponent in check over and over again, you can declare it a draw, but is it considered "cheap" or "unethical" to do this? It seems some people don't appreciate this, but I think if you can think up of a way to corner the opponent's king, good for you, you planned something and managed to dodge getting a loss despite your material disadvantage.

Any thoughts on this?

There is not, never was, and never will be, anything unetical about forcing a draw by perpetual check. It's perfectly legitimate.

I agree with zdrak

The only "cheap" or "unethical" tactics emerge off of the chessboard. You should always play your best. If it leads to a draw by perpetual check in an otherwise losing position, then, well, your opponent should have prevented it.

of course it's ethical! It's all part of the strategy of the game.

It would be nice if certain players would not first decline the draw and say "IF YOU WERE A GOOD PLAYER YOU WOULD TO RESIGN" but I guess there will always be people like that. That's just being a sore loser.... or, I guess, a sore non-winner.
