Someone, please help me out here-
Look at the following game: ID 1733987
I had just put my opponent in checkmate & he knew it (we were both passing messages back-n-forth). I made the move that I *thought* would win the game for me, and the next thing I know, the game was a draw!
Can anyone explain this to me?
Originally posted by Stephen RobbTry learning the rules before playing next time. The point is to mate the enemy king, not deprive him of legal moves.
Stalemate? WTF !?!? If Black had no legal moves, shouldn't White win? Isn't that the object of the game- to get your opponent into a position where they can't make any moves that will prevent their King from being captured?
This is the most eff'd up thing I've ever experienced (except for the night in Paris with the 3 girls- but I digress)........

The person who invented the stalemate rule was also a C# programmer and a MMPORPG addict. I guess this is just him backlashing.
Actually, the rule was probably put in place to make the game more 'intellectual'. Can anyone comment on this?
