Have you had stalemate? Let's share it.

No but I did write a blog post on some hilarious stalemates:

Yes, I have, and very unsatisfying.

This was one amazing save..

Not as impressive as the example above, but my opponent put me in stalemate

The only time I ever accidently stalemated in a winning position was in a 10 second bullet game. Position was something like this:

 

 

eaglelefty

Was playing a game. Declined my opponent's first draw offer and he managed to get a passed pawn.

Dude this is easiest endgame possible...

He made the bad king move, not me. I was hoping he didn't know about king + queen checkmate, because we spent nearly 40 moves fighting over MY passed pawn (he had to sacrifice a queen to stop it).

A very shameful game of mine a month or two back. Hanging pieces galore. I somehow came out on top with a 21 point advantage but accidentally made it a draw with 2 minutes left on my clock because I got a little greedy about the pawns.
Because of these failures, I now am very careful about endgame vs a lone king.
Without further ado, enjoy.

How is that stalemate? The pawns can still move.

That is not stalemate... If white to move Qe7#, if black to move, c4 or d5
