what about 2 knights + king vs. King -

how would you get to that position

 


That´s a draw, except for under special conditions.


 its not a draw at least i think -

 

unless i forgot to mention that a king was involved in that attack

the hardest checkmate is King + Knight + Bishop vs. King, King + Rook vs. King is insanely easy its ridculous to say its even hard.  If you think its hard you simply haven't learned that mating sequence.

3 Rooks, 3 Knights, 3 Bishops + 2 pawns v 3 Queens and 8 pawns is quite hard, though materially equal.

Hardest mate is King versus. King+Bishop+Knight.

No, King + 2 Knights vs King + pawn is harder

King vs King. always ends in stalemate. :'-(

No, it does never end in stalemate. In games and retrograde problems it ends straight away because the position is dead. In endgame studies it ends in a repetition draw. In other problem compositions it ends either by the 50M rule or by repetition.

It is all very confusing today. Read my post "understanding dead reckoning" to see that it could be resolved by the use of Soft DRexit. That would declare K vs K dead in all standard chess types!
