Longest Possible Chess Game !
In article ,
(Dr. David Kirkby)
What happens if the pawns are promoted to queens (or bishops, knights
etc)? If some pawns were made bishops, some queens, some rooks, some
knights, then there could be a lot of movement of those pieces,
without the same position being reached again. Clearly if they were
all made queens, the the same positions would be reached more quickly.
Does that not influence the result in some way ?
I don't think so. You can avoid the three-fold rep easily; the real
limiting factor is the 50-move rule.
