    Which game had the most games? I thought you could only have one game in a game.

    Here, I just dug out my longest ever game for you - 201 moves!! Not many people will be able to beat that, you should have a look through it, I am sure you will enjoy every move of it.

    Game 4292203

    That game shouldn't count. You had mate for several moves but decided not to take it. Move inflation at it's finest.

    If you go onto 'Players Tables' then select 'Most Active Player'
    you can see who is the most active player and who has made
    the most moves this month.

    This month (which is three days old) at the moment it's User 447274 who has played over 2000 moves,

    an interesting profile.
    She is a 22 year gilr who says if she drops another piece in the
    opening then she going to go nuts.

    Not too bad a player though.



    Slack finish. 26.Rd8 Ra8 27.Rxa8 Rxa8 28.Rd1 was the way.

    But lots of players below 1200 have mates all over the place and dont take them, should they be barred from holding a long game record as well?

    I don't enjoy the game at all. Rather childish, if you ask me...

    There was never a claim of a draw possible - it can only be a 50 move rule if there has been no pawn move or capture, and I was sure to make a pawn move every now and then.

    I enjoyed posting that one the first time around, I got similar responses then as well, but you guys are just jealous really because I thought of the idea first.

    I use to know this but the old grey cells are packing up bit bit every day.

    Under today's set of rules.

    What is the maximum number of moves that a chess game can last.

    It was 5,999 when FIDE increased the 50 move rule to cover certain
    endings. (Rook v Knight I think was increased) because computers
    found there were wins but it takes longer than 50 moves.

    But I'm sure the that rule was scrapped and we are now back at the
    50 move rule again. (or are we?).

    I have a new one. What's the deepest announced (or forced) mate (with no shortcuts)?

    1218 moves - you are caatching her up.

    won 466 lost 779 :'(

    Hmmmm.... bet you if you slowed down a tad you would score more
    on the wins side.

    In this game you played OK then you chucked the win

    28.Rd6 was very strong. Then go for Qc3 or Qc4+

    34.Rd8++ or 34.Rc5 + wins the Rook which was the cause of your downfall.
