User: et1 <https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/202... This game will be famous one day. It lasted 152 moves which must be a record in that format. Furthermore between move 101 and move 128 Kateryna who only needed a draw to win moved her bishop of white colors 28 times back and forth between b7 and c6. Incredible. This is what great sport is about.>

User: paulalbert <This game unfortunately demonstrated the potential absurdity of the Armageddon game concept. In a totally blocked and drawn position, Tienglie, ahead on time, just moved back and forth trying to flag Lagno. Eventually at risk of a 50 move draw giving Lagno the win because of draw odds for black, she made on move 127 a pawn advance, clearly a losing move, but giving another shot at flagging Lagno by starting 50 count over. All of course totally legal under the rules, but a little absurd from a chess perspective.>

  OhioChessFan: While Lagno did create the position where she could repeat moves, I lean a bit more toward the absurd viewpoint.

sure, and it's also plain embarrassing to play like this. and the losing pawn advance was made on move 129 not 127.

May-18-20  Granny O Doul: I predict that this game has already reached its peak of fame, and will be more and more forgotten as time goes on. Say you heard it here first.
