The Stalemate is easy to learn but hard to make. What is it? It's stalemate if one side can't make any moves with any piece. How? Let me explain by a example:
This hapened to me in a game
I was so happy...
God, sometimes, going for stalemates are the best things to do. People tell me never to go for it, but if I see the game going on for ages, I just finish it.
oH, mR.a_t_c, I'd hate that happening to me.
8/8/k2K4/P7/1Q1B2p1/1P4P1/8/8 b - -
ahaha i was so happy with that noob..ggarland is his name and stalemating is his game
somethin that stupid calls 4 teamwork
Stalemate to me just means checkmate to the player unable to move. ( It should be viewed as a checkmate that skips check...nothing more, there is no stalemate
So the key seems to be the King is not in check but a move cannot be made!
I personally consider falling into a stalemate position a sort of Blunder or at least a mistake, however if you are losing by a good margin and can force this position then a draw is a consolation. It used to be considered a loss.
today. this stalemate has saved me from lost
