Hi can someone please explain how I can win when the other player just has their King? Like how many moves do I get until it ends up a Draw and why does it not just let me keep going until I reach Checkmate? Thanks kind peeps x

Learn endgame fundamentals only box tor king in if they have extrea pieces

A few FIRST things to learn are

Rook vs king endgames

Queen vs king endgames

2 bishope endgames

1 pawn endgames

2, pawn endgames

There's allot more than that but those are the very basics of endgames

Do you really think this is good advice? For someone who doesn't know what stalemate is or what a legal move is?

Learn endgames then not to stalemate

The issue is endgame fundamentals not the stalemating

Yes she should learn how not to stalemate though

Because most of the stalemates at beginner level are like queen stalemates(easily avoided )

And pawn stalemates which are both fundamental endgames

No it's not. It is impossible to avoid a stalemate if the guy has no idea what stalemate is.

"Endgame fundamentals" is an advanced concept, way way way too advanced for absolute beginners.

My friends know what stalemate is and their is already other comments explaining it

Guess what they almost stalemate every time the issue is avoiding it not what it is

We don't know wether or not they know what it is true but still there are othrr comments explaining it

I was told if you're going after the king always keep him in check every move.

That helps a lot

But if your like In a rook endgame you can't do that

Which is why it is important to learn fundamental endgames

It is mostly making sure your king has one legal move at all times

The book A Primer of Chess by Capablanca covers all of it.

Usually people hate on tygxc advice for being copy and paste and sounds like ai generated. I think he usually gives good advice but this is an exception. Stalemate, KQ vs K, and KR vs K are the only ones that a beginner would need to know. I've never faced 2 bishops K vs K and I've played over 7000 games and the other 2 are much rarer

GabeMiami10

I would at your level get silmans endgame course and read the first chapter. Great, for teaching the bare necessites

GabeMiami10

oh I just realized this is about draws how did we get to talking about endgames

Because most of the stalemates are in endgame since it is easier to trap your king/stalemate it

But honestly that's how I avoided stalemates just learning endgame fundamentals

Bumb

Did you figure out how to avoid stalemates yet or are you still having issues ?

AlexMids

Still having issues but I will work it out I'm sure thanks.

Just make sure the king has one or two legal moves

Or a pawn or piece

Cause once the king has no legal moves and hey can not move a piece or pawn (and t is their turn )
