What is Black’s legal move in a stalemate?

Black has no legal move since every square to which his king might move is under attack by White. (Polgar & Truong 2005 :33).

The rules of chess provide that when stalemate occurs, the game ends as a draw.

Is a stalemating move a win or loss?

Before this standardization, its treatment varied widely, including being deemed a win for the stalemating player, a half-win for that player, or a loss for that player; not being permitted; and resulting in the stalemated player missing a turn. Some regional chess variants have not allowed a player to play a stalemating move.

What happens when a player stalemates in chess?

Players are not allowed to leave the opponent with no legal moves without putting the king into check.
