Longest Known Game
I wanted to print out some scoresheets. There are numerous excellent
printable examples on the Web, but, being obsessed with typesetting in the LaTeX system, and finding no LaTeX chess form, I reinvented the wheel and created a LaTeX scoresheet. Most scoresheets I've seen go up to about move 80. I know there are longer games on record, although of course the vast majority are shorter. Now, by arranging for doublesided copying, I came up with a form that goes up to 140 moves. While this is already more than a bit extreme, my question is this: what is the longest tournament game (in which, of course, players keep score) that you have heard of? Did in fact a recorded game ever go beyond, say, the 140 move point for which my scoresheet so extravagantly provides?

According to Tim Krabbe's Chess Curiosities Site, the longest tournament game so far is Nikolic, I.  Arsovic, Belgrade 1989, with 269 moves. http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/records/...Longest%20game The game can be downloaded on the same site. ClausJuergen

Well, I guess that would just about fit on *two* of my extravagant scoresheets http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/records/...Longest%20game The game can be downloaded on the same site. ClausJuergen

The game can be downloaded on the same site. ClausJuergen I must be missing something. Where are the links to download the games? Only a few games have all the moves given. I was particulary interested in the game that drew after 72 moves and no peice had been lost at all.

It is a waste to go beyond 80... or 60 for that matter.. for the small
% that go that long it is not a problem to grab a second scoresheet. On 11 Aug 2004 17:59:05 EDT, Bob Newell wrote: I wanted to print out some scoresheets.
