    Is there already a thread on Stalemates that "shouldn't" have been? In otherwords Stalemates when one side had a significant material (&/or) positional advantage?

    Saw this game referred to in the thread on resigning.

    Game 4301926

    Stalemates in situations where one side has a ridiculous material advantage are actually quite normal and occurs frequently.

    I've heard plenty of stories, but I'd like to play over the last few moves. Links links links?

    Terrible play by both sides, but a neat ending.

    I love the rule of stalemate!
    It always brings out a laughter from within. (When I'm not the victim, of course.)
