Dec-19-08  WhiteRook48: How can anyone spot a loss in 55 or a forced checkmate in 189 moves?
Dec-21-08  WhiteRook48: How to lose when you are two Queens down by Oldrich Duras
Dec-22-08  WhiteRook48: Rybka vs Nakamura, 2008 is the longest game.
Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: All those checks are not for anyone except Duras...
or a computer. :)
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: Is Duras a computer? Because he always seems to play on until checkmate.
Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: Duras could've played more checksl

  eternaloptimist: LOL, what a marathon! Duras could have given up a lot sooner than he did. Phony Benoni: "This was played the day after Duras missed a mate in three during this game: Duras vs Olland, 1907. Maybe he was just punishing himself for that slip." LOL! :D
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: wow. One can only imagine why Duras played this to the end.
Jan-28-09  WhiteRook48: why did Duras play on after move 165 was he trying to be annoying?
Jan-31-09  WhiteRook48: why did Duras give up the e5 pawn?
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: maybe he wanted to give himself a target to play against
Feb-03-09  WhiteRook48: you can only imagine how relieved Wolf was afterwards
Feb-27-09  WhiteRook48: the Wolf got into Duras' house
Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: Marco made the following sarcastic comment in the tournament book after Wolf missed 109. c6 - "In order to play another fifty moves".
Sep-01-09  Dredge Rivers: Whatta ya expect? We had a Wolf playing a Klingon!

  Open Defence: is this as close as we get to Worf vs Duras ?

  Benzol: Did Duras ever visit Wolf 359?

  Phony Benoni: No big deal. It was probably all opening preparation.
Jun-01-11  kevins55555: a 2 queen mate is LOL easy to mate with.
Jan-08-12  gezafan: Down two queens black bravely attacks with Kb4-a5-b6!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: The game dragged on for 168 moves only because Wolf missed a simple mate-in-two with 166.Qb6+ and 167.Qca6#. Can't imagine why. He certainly had enough adjournments to figure it out.
Jul-14-14  GumboGambit: When this marathon game started it was :

Heinrich Cub vs Youngrich Duras

LOL! That is a good one!

Mar-12-20  razetime: Apparently at moves 50 60 and 63 the same moves were played an a draw was claimable by threefold repetition LMAO

As is often remarked in these pages, the threefold repetition rule was not always what it is today. In Germany at that time, I believe a threefold repetition of the entire sequence of moves was required, not only the position.
