Claiming a draw by 3 move repetition works just fine, as you can see in this game.
Here's a game in which my opponent claimed the draw based on the 3 move repetition rule.
And to answer your question about him going back and claiming a draw later on, I give you this example of a very embarrasing loss. As a last desperate attempt, I tried to claim a draw by repetition as my King was being herded over to the side. And yes, I know I could have drawn at the end, and I must have been asleep or something.
