The race is on. Neck-and-neck! It's going right down to the wire!

But by early April, we're going to know who has become the first player to play 1,000,000 moves on RHP 😲

So good luck to Marko Krale & ZorrotheFox. Both on 890,000 currently; both rattling out 15,000 moves each month 😲

Utterly astonishing!

These two have played each other 300 times and currently have 13 games
in progress. The millionth move might appear in one of their games.

It would be amazing if the first millionth move on RHP was a checkmate,
though the odds are the milliononth move will be a blunder.

It might be? Because sometimes when I have one more move to make a checkmate I move all my other games until I reach a special number sometimes and make that move so they should do that too.

Right now the top mover is averaging 733 moves a day for this month of 10 days. So if you go by that it will be July 29 that it will be done so far.

Oops! Yes, you're right. I've got my maths wrong there. Shouldn't calculate before my morning coffee 😳

Have you looked at who better than who yet on wins against each other? I will eventually look when I'm at a computer but not on my iPhone.

Marko is closing fast on 900,000 moves. I'd estimate he's 10 days ahead of Zorro at their current rate of play; and moving slightly faster.

It really is an astonishing amount of chess from these 2 players. To keep up an average of say 500-600 moves a day, every day, for such a long period must be incredibly time consuming. I wonder how many hours a day they spend here? The mind boggles!

Less then 24hrs probably to go.

600 moves can take 2.5 hrs if they are made ever 15 seconds.
