    Hi,

    I was wondering which was the game which involved the most number of moves at RHP which resulted in a result and not a draw. I am sure it will be more than 250 moves (500 half moves).

    Also, which game has involved the most number moves at RHP which has resulted in a draw.

    Any ideas?

    As far as I'm aware, this is the longest game on RHP that ended in a win or loss. It should have ended in a draw, but someone was a complete idiot and failed to see it. Or, perhaps I should say someone was a complete idiot throughout the game...

    Game 1278385 155 and a half moves.


    This is the longest game on RHP that ended in a draw, I believe.

    Game 1120321 157 moves.

    Wow. Nearly 240 moves of moving the kings around. Bowmann, you've been ousted! Damn, don't you get bored of that?

    Edit: I still think I have the longest "legitimate" game. One where the kings don't circle around the bored for an extremely long time...

    I'm pretty sure you could've claimed a draw a couple times in there as the repitition rule is if the same position is repeated at any point during the game, not just 3 times in a row.

    The last sentence of my post that you quoted was directed at you, not Bowmann.

    Now, answer the question. Don't you get bored of moving the king around for over 200 moves?
