    I would think such games would be hard to resist.

    I was hoping GP or SG would do so.

    hey, i found that:

    Greatest number of checks. In Wegner - Johnson, Gausdal 1991, there were 141 checks in the game. White had 100 checks and Black had 41 checks. The game lasted 200 moves.

    probably some consecutive in there, too.

    and this:

    Longest series of checks

    In 1995 in the Czech Republic, a game between Rebickova and Voracova ended with 74 checks by the black Queen.

    ah, and this one is for sg to beat or to find out:

    Longest chess problem. The longest solution to a composed chess problem requires 292 moves.

    edit: can not find the games, sorry. no clue, if they are true...

    if you follow ragworts link you find most of the record games playable in a little window. i couldn't extract the pgn to this, though...

    and i am kind of lazy to that translation myself.

    by the way, that page is really nice. fun games, like one with two knight promotions in a single game...

    This is like someone took the script of The Usual Suspects and converted it to algebraic!

    Or a game from the introduction of A Domino Players's Guide to Chess.

    Or a new Olympic event, Synchronous Checking.
