    Very nice puzzle I found somewhere, detailing the longest checkmate problem I've yet seen, by Otto Blathy in 1860.

    A bit snappier is 1.Rd1+ Bd4  2.e4+ Kd6  3.e5+ Kd5  4.c4#  Cool

    Toying with the opponent for almost 300 moves can be fun, but in a rated OTB game I think I'd take the four-mover, lol.

    Argh, you're right, I missed the pawn when setting up the diagram, thanks for pointing it out.

    Alright everyone... just pretend it's there.....

    But why would I "just pretend it's there" when I can just go to this instead? Undecided

    I think your opponent is more likely to lose on time than to get mated.

    I think opponent would call 50-move rule in this case ;)

    A pawn move or a capture resets the 50 move count

    Pawn move too? Oh, I didn't know that. I thought just capturing and promoting. Thanks!

    You know you can edit your posts, and any diagram that is in them, right?

    Pawn moves and captures reset it.

    And interesting chess game when it comes to the 50 move rule

    you can edit diagram's? How? The only way I know of is (copying the pgn/fen then) making a new diagram
