    Will chess still be around by the time this tournament finishes?

    Well I presume the last living player in the round will win eventually.

    But there is one game with two moves already. Maybe just made under pressure of the clock

    Tournament 65 is also quite a longterm affair - i think many of the original participants will have died of natural causes before this tournament ends. (2 rounds in two years and 6 more rounds to go!)

    you are right ... Tournament 804 has potential to last very well ... with a conservative estimate: two weeks per move and 40 moves per round is 80 weeks per round ... 6 rounds gives ... easily ten years total if a strong player takes their thinking time!!!!
