May-17-07  Plato: Fastest possible stalemate! Does anyone know which chess composer first discovered it? Quite remarkable to reach stalemate in 10 moves.
May-18-07  Galaad: This is a composition by S.Loyd, see (3679. Shortest stalemate games). See also J Upmark vs R Johansson, 1995 for a slightly different version and J Hohmeister vs T Frank, 1993 for the shortest stalemate without capture (composed by Wheeler).
May-18-07  Plato: <Galaad> Thank you. What an ingenious composer Loyd was.

  whiteshark: This game is also mentioned by Lombardy/Daniels in their book "Chess Panorama". They said it has been played at a student championship and both players thought seriously long before each move. The tournament director however zeroth both of them afterwards.
Sep-15-14  Ke2: It would be worth it to get zerod to play this game.
Sep-13-19  Chesgambit: stalemate
