    Very interesting and creative! Don't worry Rustage after that great idea of trading Queens to not blunder her, like I'm prone to too, you will get much better with the other pieces as a result and end with two often that way, like the last game! Awesome mate!

    can someone explain how did this become a stalemate? lmao Black King don't have any more options, all white had to do now is move the F4 rook to H4 and its checkmate right? Did the white's timer Ran out? or was it the Power of Anime? the Plot armor

  • DamnedUsernameThing
    DamnedUsernameThing13 orë më parë

    It's black's turn and black's only piece doesn't have any option to move. So black's turn will never end, thus it is a stalemate.
