is drawn after 69 moves, with all 32 pieces still on the board. White claimed a draw under the 50 move rule. For over 30 years, this game held the record for the longest tournament game played without a capture.|

Thank You so much guys!

Filipowicz was also one of the arbiters for the 2008 Dortmund tournament.
|Feb-23-10|| ||amolv: Filipowicz - Smederevac was not a particularly interesting game, but I have seen it mentioned enough, particularly about the invocation of the 50 move rule with all the pieces on the board, that I'm surprised it's not listed here.|
|Nov-03-11|| ||OBIT: The Filipowicz-Smederevac game is devoid of any instructive or artistic value (although I suppose that has never been a requirement for a game to appear in the chessgames.com database, har har.) Basically, there are 20 moves in which the two players build a virtually impenetrable blockade, followed by 50 moves of meaningless maneuvering, with contact between the two armies never taking place.|
The moment when Filipowicz claimed the draw must have been quite funny, however. Apparently, he had made two draw offers earlier that his opponent refused. Since nowhere in the game does Smederevac make an attempt to break up the blockade, the draw refusals can't be regarded as anything more than pure obstinacy.
So, they finally get to move 70. At this point, with all 32 pieces still on the board, Filipowicz shocks Smederevac by calling the arbiter over and claiming a draw by the 50-move Rule. Hilarious...
|Oct-19-13|| ||tjipa: In 1973, he lost a rook endgame to Dvoretsky that turned out theoretically important, and Dvoretsky analyzes it in detail in his manual (failing to find the full game here, I dug it up on chesstempo). Why? Today, I was privileged to be at Sveshnikov's lecture on rook endings, and he mentioned it. Filipowicz gave a fantastic fight in that game!|
