Oct-26-05  CAPA2422: Wow. Very interesting game.

Position is almost identical after the pawns promote.

Oct-26-05  Udit Narayan: Talk about long games. A lot of queens in this game too.

122...Qc3+ deserves a !

Oct-26-05  samsal27: Ganguly should do well in the World Cup next month!
Apr-26-06  soberknight: A long and Deep game...
Sep-27-12  optimal play: After Black loses his last pawn at 79.Nxb5+ he is constantly manoeuvring his Queen for the draw, but White's determination to try and force a win with only the extra Knight borders on the obdurate. Finally it is the clever 122...Qc3+ that forces a stalemate, thus bringing this ultra-marathon to an end.

Full credit to both players for this dour struggle.

  Phony Benoni: With the 50-move rule about to kick in, Ganguly may have deliberately allowed the stalemate. That makes the whole exercise more meaningful than waiting for the arbiter to verify a claim.
