  Penguincw: I believe around move 70 either (or one) side could've claimed a draw. Repetition? Now if it is a faulty claim, the other side would be awarded more time for the disturbance.

That clearly didn't happen, and I don't know if it was a regret or relief.

117.Bxd8. And 50 moves to checkmate. I still don't know how to mate with a knight+bishop, so this is a good instructional game. I don't know how or why, but the magic number seems to be mate in 33. This one took just 27.
