Most moves in a game This may not have any tactical or analytical merit, but what are the longest games that people out there have had? My longest is 111 moves which ended in a draw. I'm curious as to if there are any which are much longer.
Kind regards

... "The master game with the most moves on record was one of 269 moves between Ivan Nikolic and Goran Arsovic. The game ended in a draw during a Belgrade tournament on Feb 17, 1989. The game lasted 20 hours, 15 minutes. Prior to this game, the longest tournament game was Martinovsky-Jansa, Gausdal 1987, which drew after 194 moves. The longest decisive game was 193 moves when Stepak defeated Mashian after 24 1/2 hours of play in Israel, 1980."

Funny You Should Ask Finished my longest game this morning. 80 moves; ended in a win by resignation. Probably could have ended it earlier if I knew how to bring home a decisive advantage ... I can steal defeat from the jaws of victory with the best of them.

icantwrite, you were lucky :-) If instead of 109. h7?, White plays 109. Kg6!, all White has to do is manouever the Knight to f7 (with or without check) and then advance the h-pawn.

My longest game on GK is a win in 84 moves.
