Chess Endgame Guide - Stalemate by Perpetual Check, Example 3This image shows Black's Queen attacking White's King, which manages to keep evading the series of checks.

However, Black is actually the player that stands to benefit from the impending Stalemate, as White has material superiority (Rook v. Knight). Black can't afford to lose the Knight (Qh7xe7), so goes for ½ a point with the Perpetual Checks.

Black salvages the Draw.
