Stalemates

Stalemates


If a player cannot move any of his pieces including his king, and at the same time his king is not exposed to an immediate check, then this is called a stalemate. When a game is almost lost, it is desirable to achieve a stalemate situation and sometimes this is helped by the use a brilliant combination!
