The recent game Liston-Stone, Vic Teams resulted

1-0 after white's 32nd.

In the final position, white had all 8 pawns intact, while black had a creditable 6!

Can anyone beat:
a) greater than 32 moves to have all one colour's pawns on the board
b) greater than 14 pawns combined for both colours after 32

I remember in an SIO about 3 years ago wandering up to one of the top boards after my game had finished after about 4 hours and they were up to about move 50-60 and very little (if any) of anything was swapped off.

I will try to dig out that game later.

cheers Garrett.

I think I remember a Johansen game where the first exchange of anything was on move 41 and Darryl eventually won in 90+ moves. Actually I would not be surprised if Darryl had several games meeting the criteria.

The famous "Alekhine's Gun" game is a near miss, with 13 pawns as the game ended on move 32.

Was that an actual 50-move–rule claim?

Can anyone beat:

b) greater than 14 pawns combined for both colours after 32

Well it fails against a) and beats b)

Thanks for playing!
