In chess, a desperado piece (from Spanish desesperado) is a piece that seems determined to give itself up, typically either
- (1) to sell itself as dearly as possible in a situation where both sides have hanging pieces or
- (2) to bring about stalemate if it is captured, or in some instances, to force a draw by threefold repetition if it is not capture.
