    take a look at game 2898292. I was one move away from checkmating my opponent and somehow they were able to clam a draw. Is there anything I can do about this? Has this happened to anyone before?Game 2898292

    When you played 66. ... Kf3 your opponent could not make any legal move, resulting in a stalemate.

    {edit: too slow}

    After 64 Kf1 best would have been...

    64 ...Qd2 (locks king on first rank, no escape)
    65 Kg1
    65 ...Kf4
    66 Kh1 (if Kf1 66... Qd1 is mate, learn that mate.. works for Rooks too)
    66 ...Kg3
    67 Kg1
    67 ...Qg2 or Qe1 mates

    P-
