I would like to
know how many times a player can check his/her opponent.
Is there a certain number of times
for checking a player before a game can be called a draw or can a
player check indefinitely?
Although there is no
rule limiting the number of checks a player can make during a game
of Chess, it cannot certainly be limitless.
The number of checks
a player can perform in a game can only be restricted by the 'Draw by threefold repetition'
or 'Draw by the fifty move' rules.
The following game
shows a match between Richard Britton and Colin Crouch played at the
P D Knights, London 1984 where Crouch (black pieces) made 43
consecutive checks and won the game.
Thank you for
