Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-18-04  uponthehill: Today I had an honour to loose two games with that man :)
Dec-05-06  GlennOliver: The game Filipowicz - Smederevac, Polanica Zdroj 1966, not listed here, is detailed on Tim Krabbe's excellent chess records website as the longest game in which no pieces were taken, invoking the 50-move rule on moves 70 -

- and page down.

May-24-07  bauernfresser: Filipowicz is the chief arbiter for the upcoming Candidates Matches.

  whiteshark: <<<GlennOliver>: The game <Filipowicz - Smederevac>, Polanica Zdroj 1966>> is drawn after 69 moves, with all 32 pieces still on the board. White claimed a draw under the 50 move rule. For over 30 years, this game held the record for the longest tournament game played without a capture.
May-13-08  brankat: Happy Birthday Mr.Filipowicz!
May-13-08  brankat: An absolutely fascinating Records site!
Thank You so much guys!

  GrahamClayton: <bauernfresser>Filipowicz is the chief arbiter for the upcoming Candidates Matches.

Filipowicz was also one of the arbiters for the 2008 Dortmund tournament.

Feb-23-10  amolv: Filipowicz - Smederevac was not a particularly interesting game, but I have seen it mentioned enough, particularly about the invocation of the 50 move rule with all the pieces on the board, that I'm surprised it's not listed here.

  OBIT: The Filipowicz-Smederevac game is devoid of any instructive or artistic value (although I suppose that has never been a requirement for a game to appear in the database, har har.) Basically, there are 20 moves in which the two players build a virtually impenetrable blockade, followed by 50 moves of meaningless maneuvering, with contact between the two armies never taking place.

The moment when Filipowicz claimed the draw must have been quite funny, however. Apparently, he had made two draw offers earlier that his opponent refused. Since nowhere in the game does Smederevac make an attempt to break up the blockade, the draw refusals can't be regarded as anything more than pure obstinacy.

So, they finally get to move 70. At this point, with all 32 pieces still on the board, Filipowicz shocks Smederevac by calling the arbiter over and claiming a draw by the 50-move Rule. Hilarious...

Oct-19-13  tjipa: In 1973, he lost a rook endgame to Dvoretsky that turned out theoretically important, and Dvoretsky analyzes it in detail in his manual (failing to find the full game here, I dug it up on chesstempo). Why? Today, I was privileged to be at Sveshnikov's lecture on rook endings, and he mentioned it. Filipowicz gave a fantastic fight in that game!
