    The Longest Game

    Pentala Harikrishna in an interview in Kolkata during the recent Tata Steel Rapid and Blitz.

    Recently, you were involved in one of the longest games ever played at the European Club Cup (236 moves). Tell us about it.

    I think it was the first time I played more than 200 moves. It’s really difficult to play that amount of moves. My opponent, David Howell, initially said he was playing because his team mate was losing. So, in order to equalise the match, he tried to win on my board. So, maybe, that was the reason he played 50 or 100 moves initially. And then I was surprised as to why he was playing so many moves, he was moving from one side to the other and not really making any progress. At some point it was quite funny because there were more arbiters waiting in the playing hall than the players because only we were playing and around nine or ten arbiters were waiting for our game to finish. I think we played for around six hours and forty-five minutes. Not much time was left for dinner (laughs)…when I saw the final drawing pattern, I didn’t know whether he wanted to make a record or something. It was quite tiring. First, it was long and second, there was no improvement. We sat and wrote the moves on four sheets of paper. I was exhausted and I was hoping the match would finish soon so that I could grab a bite, but it was important not to make a mistake in the match.

      Five Guys Named Jamieson

      I never would have thought in writing great chess quotes that I would give the entire results of a tournament!

      First, this quote from Ian Rogers:

      Results of an extraordinary recent tournament in Peru, featuring five players named Jamieson, are here:

      However according to FIDE VP Granda, the tournament run by IA Tacuche Martinez never happened! Past fake events have created norms, but why this one??

        From an interview of Chris Ward with Maurice Ashley during the broadcast of London Chess Classic. Chris is the most enthusiastic, effervescent commentator around:

        Discussing the Ding Liren – MVL game:

        “Ding has a lot of pawns still on the board. You know what we would like to see? There is the chance of seven new queens appearing on the board!”
