|Aug-13-04|| ||capablancakarpov: The all time longest decided game. Also, the game with the longest playing time (24 hrs. 30 min.).He was played in 23 days, from March 23 to April 16. |
|Aug-13-04|| ||tweetypie: <capablancakarpov> Thanks for the info. It's quite a marathon: imagine playing for 24hrs! Do you mean the whole match was played March 23rd-April 16th? |
|Aug-13-04|| ||capablancakarpov: <tweetypie> Yes,it had a lot of interruptions.The info i posted about the playing days was copy from The Guinness Book of Records.And it was played in 25 days,no 23,though i suppose there were rest days. |
|Sep-22-04|| ||mjk: White to move and mate in 41 after 184...♔f3 <Nalimov>. After the played move 184...♔f4 it's mate in 32--so the game could have been even longer. |
|Oct-10-04|| ||ThomYorke: I think that would have been better 21) Bh3. Black´s light square bishop was stronger. This way, either trading or not the bishops, white would have advantage...cause the black´s bishop in b7 was stuck...and the white´s bishop in h3 was well placed. |
|May-11-05|| ||prinsallan: If Im not mistaken, this game, if made "game of the day" by chessgames.com will prolly get the title: "The long chiss goodnight" ^^|
|Jun-15-05|| ||kevin86: A few things to add:both players promoted after move 175-white at 180,black at 179.|
From move 58-173,only three pieces,all bishops,appeared on the board. Rarely,do three bishops- and no other pieces-appear ever! Here is was for over 100 moves.
|Jun-15-05|| ||iron maiden: How many actual playing days were there? I think there couldn't have been more than five or six, if this took place in a serious tournament.|
|Jun-15-05|| ||Knight13: Wow this game long! They could've took a draw in the B+B endgame.|
|Jun-16-05|| ||aginis: how about 104. Bg5! fxg5 (104...Bh8? 105.Bh6 zugzwang black loses the a pawn.) 105.fxg5 Bc3 (to prevent f6 locking in the B) 106.f6 Be5 107.Kb3 Kc7 108.Kc2 Kd8 109.Ba4 Bd4 110.Kd3 b3 111.Bxb3 Ke8 112.Ke4 Kf7 113.Kf5 and from here the win is trivial|
the drawing finesse is 104...Kc7!! 105.Kxa5 b3 106.Ba4 Bc3+ 107.Kb5 Bd2 108.g6 b2 109.Bc2 Bc3 draw.
|Jun-16-05|| ||aginis: i think black had a draw before 130.Bh6 which opened up the dark squared bishop.|
|Jun-27-05|| ||Happypuppet: Seeing the kibitzing analysis with 3 digit move numbers makes me laugh.|
|Sep-05-05|| ||Veryrusty: Yes, he did, since he was within four moves of claiming a 50-move-rule draw:
85. ... bxa5 through 131. ... Bxf4 is 46. Without studying it extensively, I suspect if Black left the bishop in place (as aginis notes) he gets to the 50th move without a capture.|
|Nov-18-05|| ||zb2cr: <aginis>,
I don't understand your comment about
"drawing finesse". You give 104. ... Kc7; 105. Kxa5, b3; 106. Ba4, Bc3+
but 106. ... Bc3+ is impossible--the Black Pawn blocks the Bishop on g7. Just what did you have in mind?
|Mar-27-06|| ||KYENNY139: impressive game. good technique by white. it probably should have been a draw though...|
|Apr-19-06|| ||zb2cr: <Veryrusty>,
Guess again, BTW. The rule is "no piece captured"--which means the 50-move clock starts not at Black's 85th move, but at White's 94th. So 50 moves would be White's 144th. The alternative to Black's 131 ... Bxf4 would be 131 ... Bf8, with the idea of
132. Kc2, Be7; 133. Kb3, Bd8 to protect the Pawn at a5 from the White King's raid.
|Jun-02-06|| ||MatrixManNe0: How come black didn't push the b-pawn after 125. Be8? For example: 125. Be8 b3 126. Ba4 b2 127. Bc2 a4 128. Be1 a3 129. Bc3 Kh7 and the Bishops are frozen, thus probably forcing a draw.|

Hmm that also loses to 129. Bb1 and now the white king is free to go on the queen side to kill of the pawns on a3,b2. Because he will be quicker then the black king.
And once that happened whites bishop is free to run again|
Blacks bishop can't do anything useful. The doubled pawns on the f-file are ok. The only can which can taken is the f4 pawn but only for an exchange pawn+Bishop vs Bishop. And after that white will win.
|Nov-01-06|| ||2021: Probably the longest game that was not a draw.
|Aug-08-07|| ||FSR: Too bad Black wasn't able to put up more resistance in the Q + P v. Q ending -- then this could have been a really long game!|
|Dec-03-07|| ||SadisticKing: They passed the 50 move rule though.|
|Feb-10-08|| ||Funicular: ahahahahahaa "Sac: 178" :P :P :P :P :P|
|Jan-08-09|| ||WhiteRook48: if they'd agreed to a draw it would've been dumb because WHITE IS A BISHOP AHEAD!|
|Jan-09-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Wow. who said KQP vs KQ was a draw?|
|Jan-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this is such a long game, but the longest is 275 moves.|
