    honestly, not real often... In blitz i suppose it would be easier to do it. However, thats a basic rule of promotion, make sure their isn't a stalemate

    lesson learned i guess.

    probable blitz variation would have been :
    47...Kc5 48.cxb5 e1Q 49. Ka2 Qb4 50. Ka1 Qb2#

    Don't feel too bad about it, most of us have done it at one time or another. Some of us don't like to admit we have done it

    This happens pretty often in blitz. I've managed to pull a stalemate off once where I had a queen and king and opponent only a king with about 10 seconds left on the clock.

    On the other hand I managed to get stalemated when my opponent was up a queen, rook, bishop, knight and 4 pawns once.
