I think because the game was past 70 moves and My opponent ask for a draw a few moves back I felt compelled to be a gentleman about it and not drag it on. I've seen in past post where when asked for a draw that it's ok to ask your opponent to prove the draw. Thanks for any advice or comments good or bad.
As Fat Lady shows this is an easy win for Black.
On the length of games, if you think you have winning chances play on. While 70 moves is probably above the average length of game, it is nowhere near the longest. Following are examples.
The longest in a world championship match : -
Korchnoi v Karpov; 5th game 1978 : stalemate after 124 moves.
The longest Game won and lost : -
Wolf v Duras; Carlsbad, 1907 : 168 moves and 22·5 hours play.
The longest Game I know of is : -
Nikolic v Arsovic; Belgrade, 1989 : Drawn after 269 moves.
