Can you give us an example of a position in which a player should easily win a game but a bad move can turn a victory into a stalemate?

Thank you.

Dear viewer,

Herman Pilnick vs. Samuel Reshevsky (US Championship, 1942) shows a game situation that may answer your question.

Having a three Pawn advantage and virtually the game won, Reshevsky (black) last move ...g4?? enables his opponent to draw the game.

In the following interactive board, find the great move made by Pilnick (white) that enabled him to draw this game.
