    Game 9991319

    This game was mentioned in the Help forum. Is it, at 1969 moves, the longest game on RHP?

    It's long enough where I wouldn't want to bother trying to find one to beat it.

    It's a silly game anyway, just kings after 151 moves, 201 moves would have put them at the 50 move rule.

    I agree.

    The white player, who posted in Help, did not know the way to claim an automatic draw. The black player would not agree to a draw offer and was presumably hoping for a win by timeout after white simply got fed up with the whole business. I just wonder how long they would have kept it going.
