Please Keep The Stalemate !!!

A open letter to the FIDE:   Dear FIDE, Please keep the Stalemate as it has been a part of Chess for many many years. Thank You !

Yes we often see threads here where some " Genius " asks that the Stalemate rule be thrown out. The main question in those cases would be: if these Geniuses are so darn smart why can they not AVOID the Stalemate if they are about to win the game  Rofl.

If there was money in throwing it out, they'd throw it out in a New York minute...

I think they should add take backsies again like they did when Kasparov played Polgar.

You mean, like do-overs?

No like for pro games instead of eliminating stalemate everyone gets one take backsy, like “Oh I didn’t see that would make it stalemate. Take backsy!” And the problem is solved.

   ---   There is not any problem that needs to be solved. If the player is really as smart as they think they are then why can't they just avoid the stalemate ???

Players as a general rule are not as smart as they think they are.

We all need a take backsy sometime.
