Thank You Franco about Your thoughts. Something is wrong
because Karl Fabel showed already year 1947 a game which
was 5898.5 moves long. The rules have changed since Karl
Fabel's time. With current rules the longest game is
5898.0 moves as shown in my article in "Suomen Tehtäväniekat"
4-5/2004. There has been a little protest against my article,
telling that in my game the game should be over already in
5897.5 moves due to the dead reckoning rule. That is true,
but with a slight modification to that game it can be exten-ded to 5898.0 moves. Olli.
