This is the longest game I could find.
I've not counted but suspect Black gave up a pawn to avoid the 50 move rule.

Yes, I gave up a pawn to get 50 more moves....
As it was a hard core tournament with ZERO day timeout and 21 day timebank we both were running out of time. I was in the better position with more time left.
In the end he moved and moved and I had to allow him to claim the draw....
Originally posted by greenpawn34Thanks greenpawn. But as others have said, more about time than chess.
