    I do know that Brian Wall and Pete Karagianis played a 141 move draw at the North American FIDE Open recently but I have no idea what the record is.

    I think the record for a game between masters is 269 moves for a draw, but I'm not sure who the players were.

    The longest tournament chess game ever to be played was Nikoli&-Arsovik, Belgrade 1989, which lasted for 269 moves. It was a draw.

    I think the OP meant games on here.

    Two 1200 lads on here played on with bare Kings for a total of...

    10 moves? No
    20 moves? No
    50 moves? No
    100 moves No

    They played 131 bare king moves till one of them
    eventually skulled out. Game 67345. A total of 196 moves.

    You can tell it's two 1200 player's.
    Move 131.Ke4 is an obvious endgame blunder. πŸ˜•

    PS: one of the players is actually called: GrandMaster

    The opening sentence in his profile:

    "To die with honor in battle is better to be a coward and live."

    Trying to win with bare Kings does inded show a fighting spirit that the rest
    of us lack. And he did win when Black timed out.

    How do you find these games?

    Might need more than 200. Here's the longest one I know of: Game 5003418
    Since it was a 1/0 game, they kept hoping the other would time out eventually. I was disappointed with the draw. I thought white had a good position after driving black to the edge of the board on move 299.

    They just come to me when I'm sleeping.

    I always dream I'm skipping through a field of brightly coloured flowers,
    as in the song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds', when suddenly the girl
    with the Sun in her eyes appears and tells me to look at games.

    Game 217237 and Game 228160 where the same Black player
    User 35355 (who by the way has a brilliant avatar + profile picture),
    twice walks into Legal's Mate.

    Once with an early h6. Final position. game 217237.



    So he tries an early a6. Final position game 228160.



    So much for the theory that you learn from your losses. πŸ˜‰

    It's called Legal's Mate after a French lad, Kermur Sire De Legal
    who caught a player with this in Paris 1750.

    Sometimes I see a pink rabbit and when I follow it I come to an RHP site
    with an updated database and a PGN moving thingy that let's Black go first.

    ....then I wake up and realise it was all a dream.

    I think this is the game I. Nikolic - Arsovic : Belgrade, 1989.This did go to 269 moves and was drawn. This is the longest one I know of also.
    Sorry, I see this just duplicates what has already been posted.

    Everything came off in this one by move 54!! That's 260 moves with bare Ks

    Words, and psychiatry, fail me πŸ™„
