  technical draw: Wow a hundred mover draw against Alekhine. He was called Mr. Oss after this.
Jan-23-18  Grandma Sturleigh: Between moves 62 and 99, Alekhine keeps trying to play ...g4 but Mross keeps stopping him.

  profK: Could the 40 move rule have been invoked at move 102? Or did it not exist then????

  Retireborn: <prof> Since Black moves a pawn on move 61 (and White makes a capture on move 101!) the 50 move rule doesn't apply. The endgame is obviously drawn anyway.

The rule does go back to at least the 19th century, I think.

Jul-01-18  joddon: seen this kind of mental struggle on the streets one time....happens where black is thinking he has that pawn edge ..but really doesn't....seems so so bad cus whites king looks really bad in the corner with blacks queen loose and 3 pawns coming forward...apparently whotes queen is troublesome as can be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
