Hello my chess friends. As you already know, tactics is a very important aspect of the game if you want to raise your level. In this post, I’m going to try to help you to improve, explaining these 5 puzzles, where you have to get a draw using Stalemate ideas.

We have Stalemate, when a side has to play, but there is no legal move, and also, the king is not in check. In that situation, we say it is Stalemate and the result of the game is a draw. Let’s see how to use this as a very nice tactic idea.

** (Right click in the question mark (?) to see the solutions, also it’s all explained in the video)

Position 1

Position 2

Position 3

Position 4

Position 5


In this video you can find variations and explanations of these 5 diagrams.
