    If a game has ended up with k on h8, K on g6 & P on h7 what happens?

    Stalemate is a situation in the game of chess where the player whose turn it is to move is not in check but has no legal move. The rules of chess provide that when stalemate occurs, the game ends as a draw.

    I hope this clarifies stalemate for you.

    Yes, thank you. I believe that covers the position I described & was as I thought but I wasn't sure.

    I have campaigned for a rule change such that;

    Stalemate is a situation in the game of chess where the player whose turn it is to move is not in check but has no good move.

    My grade would go through the roof.

    Let's hope the original poster isn't unnerved by this post.

    It certainly unnerved me - I had a vision of just getting on top of an opponent and having him claim a draw - means I'd never ever win a game again! That event is rare enough for me to want to protect it ...
