    You mean 2Kb8, but the question is a good one.

    2Kb8 Kb6

    3a7   K whereever

    4a8=Q and no stalemate, routine KQ vs lone K from there.

    This is elementary K+p vs K endgame stuff. It can only be genuinely "interesting" to those who right after learning the rules proceeded to try aping GMs by memorizing opening lines, rather than learning some basic endgames.

    NO-NO, you made a mistake there. 5 ... Kd8 should lose for Black, White must play 6 Ke6. I think.....

    Alternatively, 6. Kd6 Ke8 7. Ke6 also wins.

    This is just a puzzle I made... it's checkmate in one move.
