Darvlays current Moves =20700

If he played 2 more moves he would have a Palindrome.

After this . How many moves would he play until the next Palindrome was reached?

(best of 3 to the first correct )

ok.

I see your rating is tremendous.

Would you consider best of 3?

20702 + 1010 = 21712

explain please why the following is wrong:
20700 + 1012 = 21712
and
20702 + 1010 = 21712

which is what my answer meant, and what the creator of the thread understood.

I would say 100. Taking him to 20802.

"After this" refers to after Darvlay has played 20702 moves. If he then played 1012 moves, he'd have 21714 moves, and not 21712 as you claimed. If he played 1010 moves "after the 2", he's have 21712, and not 20702 as you wrote.

I believe that you understood the answer. You just mistyped it. What you wrote was incorrect though clearly you knew what you were talking about.
