Some comments

1) Randomness was provided by /dev/urandom

2) The double anomaly comes from the stalemate numbers. Of the five ways a random game can end, only stalemating has a majority of the games ending with a Black move. Also, only stalemating has a White/Black spread greater than a half percentage point (0.58%). Why?

3) Insufficient material = KvK, KNvK, or KBvK.

4) Fifty move trumps repetition.
