rule query is there a rule whereby if playerx constantly checks playery then the game is drawn?? I realise its simple in the case of a perpetual check where the king is trapped and can only move to two squares. But what if the king can move all over the board and be checked 15 times in a row or more. Is there a rule here??????

Sounds like... At that point its time to resign. If the same position occurs three times in a row, it is a draw, but if its just simply moving your king out of check and opponent moving to put you in check 15 times....makes for an uninteresting game

There is no "draw by perpetual check" rule per se; it's a specific case of a general draw rule. A chess game is drawn whenever the exact same position occurs on the chessboard three times over the course of a game with the same side to move each time and both sides possessing the same move priveledges (i.e. castling rights, rights to capture pawns en passant, etc...). The threefold repetition of a position need not occur on successive moves.

Another draw rule is the 50 move rule. This occurs when 50 moves have elapsed since any pawn has moved or been captured. The stronger party must mate within these 50 moves, or the game is declarable as a draw.

One last draw rule is the Dr. Gandalf rule. It says Dr. Gandalf is entitled to a draw in any game he is losing. However, I have never seen it enforced.

15 fold repatitian There is no rule which says if the king keeps moving and keeps being put in chech 15 times that the game is written off as a draw.

Well In some endings,this is possible and is a draw. For example KQ vs KQP with the pawn not well advanced, The weak queen can keep checking the strong king and he can go around most of the board. The 50 move rule still holds but proper etiquette would be that the strong player agrees to a draw.
