  whiteshark: I guess they didn't know all drawing rules:

<44... Bxc6> was last but one, <119... Bxh5> is last pawn grabbing,

so the <fifty move rule> could be claimed after move 94 or after move 169.

Maybe a bug ??

Noteworthy: Pawn moves on 54th and 104th; last pawn move on 140th, draw agreed 50 moves later !

Annoying ?? Funny !!

Jun-25-07  capablancakarpov: The fifty move rule also counts when you move a pawn, that is the reason why there was a pawn move on 104th, because if not the fifty rule move applies and there is a draw, this is common among computers.
Jun-25-07  Jim Bartle: You call this boring? Ha! It's a thrill ride compared to Junior vs. Ponomariov 2005.

  whiteshark: As far as I can remember <Kai Skibbe> once quoted <Stefan Mayer-Kahlen> to play drawish endgames to the end to <get the <necessary tournament hardship>> .

(sich die "notwendige Turnierhärte holen")

Jul-03-07  Fast Gun: Somebody should have pulled the plug on this game after move 50, alright so white is a pawn up but you only have to play through the next dozen moves to realise that white is not, or does not know how to make progress:
May-28-08  Rod Serling: The problem with these silicon monsters is they never get tired and they hate to draw more than Fischer did, even when they have just Kings on board. ; P
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: I thought these computers were programmed to know that two kings was a draw.
Mar-15-09  WhiteRook48: loop-de-loop
Aug-29-09  WhiteRook48: 140...h5 starts the fifty-move count
