In my last question, I asked why engines sometimes force a draw when they can still win. Now, I'm asking about the opposite situation:
[FEN "5K2/5n2/8/3n2k1/8/8/8/8 w - - 0 1"] 1. Ke8? (1. Kxf7) 1... Nd6+ 2. Kf8 Kh6 3. Kg8 Ne7+ 4. Kh8?? Nf7#
It's completely impossible for White to win here, but Black winning is still possible, if White blunders into the corner or runs out of time. Isn't the obvious move then for White to play Kxf7, to secure the draw immediately? Why does Stockfish instead suggest Ke8, which keeps the game going and leaves open the possibility of a loss?
