|Aug-27-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Why did they play on so long? |
|Nov-03-04|| ||alexandrovm: from move 33 until move 89 there are no piece takings. Isn't that a draw? Because that's more than 40 moves without taking eachother pieces. Move 73 should have been the end of this game. Anyone help me on this please. |

FIDE Laws of Chess http://www.fide.com/official/handbo...
9.3 The game is drawn, upon a correct claim by the player having the move, if
a) he writes on his scoresheet, and declares to the arbiter his intention to make a move which shall result in the last 50 moves having been made by each player without the movement of any pawn and without the capture of any piece,
b) the last 50 consecutive moves have been made by each player without the movement of any pawn and without the capture of any piece.
9.4 If the player makes a move without having claimed the draw he loses the right to claim, as in Article 9.2 or 9.3, on that move.
|Nov-03-04|| ||alexandrovm: thank you too <SBC> |
|Nov-03-04|| ||alexandrovm: I got it now <clocked>, thanks! :) |
|Nov-24-06|| ||kevin86: Actually,the move to start the 50 move count was white's 38th, a pawn move. Either player could have claimed a draw at move 89 or white,before he moved his pawn-after which,all discussion would be ended.|
Either player may claim a draw if the fifty move criteria are met:namely,NO capture,pawn move,or changing of the castling status.
|Mar-28-07|| ||Fisheremon: Perhaps 34.e4!? could be more logical to White's plan, e.g. 34...Nd4 35.e5 g5 36.f4 with a huge advantage and all chances to win.|
|Mar-28-07|| ||HannibalSchlecter: Karpov tried to bore Kasparov to death. Well it didn't work, however I fell asleep twice going over the game. Karpov's games are about as exciting as golf on the radio.|
|Apr-11-08|| ||Knight13: Actually, they didn't need to play to the point of claiming a draw. It's already a book draw. Maybe just Kasparov messing around with Karpov's head.|
|Aug-23-12|| ||Albion 1959: A war of attrition !! Maybe this game was the reason why they played so many short draws, with plenty of pieces on the board and plenty of play in the position?|
