Longest Game
  • Carroll ★ at 2006-02-22

    Do you have a game with more than 50 moves ?

    This Linesman against Hartmut game 492353 seems the longest for now.

    Is there a draw by repetition, is that rule implemented ?

    That's what Hartmut and I were asking ourselves before he, gentleman that he is, opened the kind of stalemate situation by a risky move which led to his losing the game.

    Yes it seems to be implemented, but oddly it took 10 moves before it decided we had 3 repetitions of the position (same player to move ?), maybe a problem with starting position not counted.

    an “offer draw” button like in TwixT could solve the problem

    First real draw by repetition here between Beppi and Kouvitch worked after 3 times this same position.

    But here white could win by playing d3-e4 instead of repeating d7-f5, f5-d7…
