Apr-09-13  knightfly: I believe this is the longest ever game without a capture and also possibly the most boring game ever.

  OhioChessFan: Agreed on the boring part. Definite top 10 material. It wouldn't surprise me if the players had agreed to draw and the game was entirely a charade. As for the longest game without a capture, Krabbe' affirms Meijfroidt - Lenoir
Veurne 2000 which isn't in this database.

White overstepped the time limit here at move 72.

This game *may* have been an arranged draw, but not necessarily. Looks more like neither player could think of anything constructive to do, so they both just shuffled pieces around.

Also, while the conditions and motivations were very different, I once drew a blitz game very like this. Both of us had opportunities to open the game, but to do so would have been so insanely risky that we both chose in our respective turn to close it instead, hoping for a sacrificial breakthrough at the right moment. But that moment never actually arrived.
