The additional move for the lone King will still be required for this preset, but the Bare King rule precedence over Stalemate will assign the win to the correct player.

I would expect the White player in the center position to resign, rather than to play, but if he plays the preset logic will now award the win to Black (no matter what White plays), and formally end the game.
