This note investigates the recently revived proposal that the stalemated side should lose, and comments further on the information provided by the FRITZ14 interface to Ronald de Man’s DTZ50' EGTs. The history of stalemate is convoluted, and there is an argument for computing chess endgame tables to revised rules to examine the impact of any change. The FRITZ14 interface to the DTZ50' EGTs exhibits residual 'one-out' and end-of-phase errors. Example positions are provided to illustrate the stalemate and the DTZ50' issues described.
