  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Any game with the move 38 0-0+ is all right by me.
Dec-27-06  ReikiMaster: 22...Nd3+ is a great combo winning the Queen for 2 minor pieces. White gets a strong attack however and black should perhaps have sought counterplay by 29...Rf2. Also refusing the repetition in move 35 seems like a misjudgement by black.

  AylerKupp: Well, for yet another interpretation, to me "joint castling" indicates the latest move when both sides have castled. So in Yates vs Alekhine, 1930 it would be move 36. Then again, <Delboy> might have something else in mind, but his description of "where both sides castle together" seems to indicate that he had <morfishine>'s interpretation of castling on the same move in mind.

So, if that's the case, can anyone come up with the game which shows the latest move in which both players castled? Negi vs Lahno, 2006 wouldn't apply since in that game Lahno castled on move 27 and Negi castled on move 38. Perhaps it would simplify things to select the game in which <either> player castled the latest.

FWIW, this article by Natalia Pogonina,, indicates that the latest castling (but not joint) was performed in two games, M Neshewat vs R Garrison, 1994 and Somogyi vs R Black, 2002, both featuring castling on move 48 by Black.

And this is corroborated by Tim Krabbe in But if you click on the link you get a nice picture of Ms. Pogonina as a bonus. :-)
