In chess, there is a concept called Perpetual Check, which is when a player can force a tie in a game if she can force an unending series of checks. 

Black is in big trouble here, but can force a Perpetual Check, and thus a tie, by playing Queen to e1 check, White king goes to h2, Black Queen to h4 check, White King to g1, Black Queen to e1 and give check, forever.

I chose the name Perpetual Chess, for my podcast and chess teaching business, as a play on this concept, with a nod to the rich and enduring history of chess. After all, chess has been around for over 1600 years, was founded on the other side of the world (in what is now India), and is played in every country.  In recent years, chess is only gaining in popularity, and as a master level chess player, enthusiastic chess teacher and host of a popular chess podcast, I try to do my part to make sure that chess will be popular Perpetually. 😀
