i was wondering, what the average game lenght is, lets say on GM level above 2400 elo and tourney games. i think draws often happen shortly after move 40 (time control). in win games one side resigns around move 30-40. of course many games are longer as well (probably more games above 40 moves than below 30 moves). whats the average? anyone ever investigated on that?
