Random information on the term “Stalemate”:

Checkmate (often shortened to mate) is a game position in chess and other chess-like games in which a player’s king is in check (threatened with capture) and there is no way to remove the threat. Checkmating the opponent wins the game.

In chess, the king is never captured—the game ends as soon as the king is checkmated. In formal games, most players resign an inevitably lost game before being checkmated. It is usually considered bad etiquette to continue playing in a completely hopeless position.

If a player is not in check but has no legal move, then it is stalemate, and the game immediately ends in a draw. A checkmating move is recorded in algebraic notation using the hash symbol “#”, for example: 34.Qg7#.

A checkmate may occur in as few as two moves on one side with all of the pieces still on the board (as in Fool’s mate, in the opening phase of the game), in a middlegame position (as in the 1956 game called the Game of the Century between Donald Byrne and Bobby Fischer), or after many moves with as few as three pieces in an endgame position.
