    What is your favourite stalemate? One where you clearly otherwise would have lost. Or maybe couldn't even win. I'm yet to get one, despite many drawn-out games trying.

    When the king is stalemated but you still have just a rook left.

    You can call blacks king in check indefinately and he can't take it.
    had a few like that and they are funny games.

    Shhhh - you're not supposed to give the solution away if you've already seen it.

    I really don't like those "strange" type of studies, but that was the most brilliant one I've seen! it's so artistic.

    Here is Nimzovitch in 1905 chasing the King all over the board
    cooking up some lovely stalemates in the process.

    An incredible game.

    Your position, swiss gambit, It is hard to see.
    but White does win. It is damn hard to see tough.

    a good one.

    Rook actually mate the black king in 18 moves. lol.
    i won't give the solution.

    I couldn't get it on my own, but luckily somebody "whispered" in my ear. It's a nifty problem. (I just want to know how white gets that pawn structure, lol.)
