is it sporting?

Post  Rimrunner on Sat Jul 19, 2008 2:28 pm

okay im in a slightly worse position than my opponent and i will probably lose, as he i 100 points higher than me, but i can check him repeatadly so i will force a draw - should i do it? i was in a similar position before and i played the game out and lost, but recently someone got a draw by doing this to me!

for me rim..i would sooner draw than lose so if the only way to do that is by a perpetual check.then thats what i would do..i dont think it is bad sportmanship.your opponent should of accounted for it in his attack.and i think in your game against duhek rim even though you are behind on material you have a slight advantage.and may win....good luck mate

yes rim..let us know how you get on mate...one point i see you have moved your knight in the next move to c5....do you think knight d4 might of being better...putting pressure on the mate attack and possibly stopping the rook check???


the best player for advice from our team is jason(jh001).he is a big studier of chess.and im sure he would not mind helping with any problems or advice for team members.....

yes that would have maybe been a better option but i thought him checking me would not give him an advantage my next move after check will probably be nE6 which will put him under more pressure (i hope) i think he will be thinking about bringing his other rook out

Perpetual check

Post  jh001 on Sun Jul 20, 2008 6:41 pm

Hey rimrunner,

Perpetual check is a perfectly legitimate way of saving lost games and/or securing a valuable half point in a tournament.
In my (humble) opinion it would be less sporting to refuse a perpetual check in a lost position as you are allowing your opponent's error/oversight to go deliberately unpunished - a draw is a perfectly legitimate chess outcome.

draw it

Post  virgodave on Mon Jul 21, 2008 2:01 am

Hi Rim, tack the draw. I did the same last week and he was 100 points lower than me. I was lost if I did not. I lost some points, not the game. All the best Dave
