- Overview -

Chess Endgame Guide - Stalemate by Perpetual Pursuit, Example 3This example shows White's Queen and a Black Rook making the same, repetitive moves, three times in a row, resulting in Stalemate.

At first it may not be clear who benefits more.

But, White appears to have more advantages: King is safely Castled; Queen dangerously advanced into Black's territory, and White's Center Pawns with a 2-v-1 advantage. So, I'd say...

Black salvages the Draw.
