Draw?! How?!

I must admit I’m not great at chess but how did the computer conclude that the following is a draw?

Chess - draw

Should be a resigned! That’s just plain cheating!

UPDATE: Just looked up the conditions for a draw or stalemate on wiki… That is just bizarre. The other player has evidently lost the game yet it’s a draw. Quite dumb if you ask me.

  1. Stalemate is quite important in chess actually. It is important as a player to realize that certain moves can make them a draw no matter how advantageous your side is at the moment.

  2. I think the point is if you have such an advantage, you shouldn’t stalemate the opponent. Changing stalemate to a win would actually affect some common chess endgame situations.

    1. I see what you mean but I don’t agree with the rule. Not being able to move any where is the same as a checkmate in my view – another form of it if you like.
