I found all of the stalemate tricks.
This video has opened a new chapter in my mind about how to play the latter stages of a chess game! Very well done.
I liked the last game, even though Qxf6 didn't work it definitely was black's best shot, for if he didn't play it he was already losing.
Thanks for watching guys, hope you enjoyed!
Brilliant and absolutely entertaining. Thank you
In the final game, it looks like white had a trick of his own, that he missed which is Rh7!!

this video inspired a game i played today after watching it.. check this out
Too easy, Keaton. You shoud make a video where you show very, very, hard tactics.
This was an eyeopener ... Wow !
Great video. Those draws aren't boring to me cause they show fighting spirit.
This incredibly interesting video certainly has changed my perception regarding draws, stalemates, and what to watch out for in the most "winning" position! Fantastic video showing clearly there is a whole new dimension to the game of chess for me. Thank you.
very beautiful....thanks keaton, last game was brilliant!!
Really stunning and very instructive.
That third game was very entertaining! Great series.

Stalemates aren't just for kids, dear viewers. IM Kiewra's series returns with a trio of "alternate endings." The first trick is pleasant. The second is radical. The third example is simply epic. Both sides are sacrificing their queens on consecutive moves - and they're not crazy! The ingenuity displayed is classic Christiansen. To envisage all of this over the board shows that GMs probably solve compositions too!
