Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-20-04  nikolaas: It seems that he once thought 2 hours and 20 minutes for one single move.
Dec-22-05  martinshortsays: Yes I just got that as the "tip of the day" from the kchess program. It said the match took place in Vigo, Spain against Luis Santos. The longest think may have been out of spite as he apparently had only two legal moves to choose from.
Jan-04-06  WMD: The critical position arose after:

1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.e4 Bc5 5.Nxe5 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Nxe5 7.d4 and finally 7...Ng6

The story goes that Santos asked him: 'How are you able to spend more than two hours when you only had two possible moves? I don't understand.' 'Me neither,' came the reply.

  Chessical: Francisco Ricardo Trois was born on 3rd September 1946 in Canoas in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

He narrowly lost a match (1.5-2.5) against Rubinetti in Porto Alegre 1976.

He qualified for the Riga Interzonal from the South American zonal tournament, played in Tramandaí in 1978. This earned the title of International Master. At the Interzonal he came 17th out of 18 but he defeated Gennady Kuzmin and Florin Gheorghiu (who would have come second in that tournamant if he had won), and drew with Bent Larsen. As a consequence, Trois received several invitations to participate in international events and stayed in Europe, resident in Belgrade for some 18 months whilst he played in European competitions. He achieved third place in Reggio Emilia 1980/81, but decided to return to Brazil.

Again, after the the 1982 Olympiad in Lucerne, Trois spent several months in Europe playing in international tournaments. He currently resides in his hometown of Canoas, where he is Director of the Cultural Foundation of Canoas.

  vonKrolock: <Chessical> very kind... His complete name is Francisco Ricardo Terres Trois -

*** en passant - in our match from 1974, in an event called then <"Team Tournament Sesquicentennial German Immigration">, played in Novo Hamburgo 1974, Rio Grande do Sul and Paraná drew in the first round 2-2: In the first board Trois and Sunyé drew in a long ♖+♗ vs ♖ endgame in which <"terrible"> Trois tried to win until the very last of the fifty moves; in the second board Pereira vs Kornin 1.d4 ♘f6 2.c4 e6 3.♘c3 ♗b4 etc 0-1 ; Otto Mak vs Midugno 0-1 , then Marini drew in the fourth board , therefore the account of personal results in the now called <8th Braziian Team Ch> needs still some repairs

  kbob: I disagree somewhat with the hype over the long think. If the position given by commentor WMD is correct, it seems to me there are at least four night moves to consider, some leading to great complications and possible sacrifices. Furthermore, I count thirty legal moves in the position for black.
