    according to some rules (USCF I think) the game is automatically a draw after 175 moves. Is there any condition on this website that the game will automatically draw?

    FAQ

    "No piece capture or pawn movement has occurred for over 50 consecutive moves (100 half moves). Therefore the game has not progressed and a draw may be claimed by either player during their next move".

    It's not automatic though.

    No. You can claim a draw, but you'd only claim the draw for the 50 move rule which would eventually happen. The site will never stop the game and make it a draw after 175 moves.

    It certainly isn't in the FIDE "Laws of Chess".
    In any case. the longest game I know of was I. Nikolic - Arsovic,
    Belgrade 1989; which went to 269 moves and was agreed drawn.
