I wonder why Ozturk even bothered to play on after that. Probably a matter of national pride.

(Ozturk is Turkish while Karahaliou is Greek, a sensitive issue).

Sep-17-06  LivBlockade: A game which should have ended at move 5 nearly goes to move 100.

  ToTheDeath: I sort of doubt there was a friendly handshake after the game.
Nov-23-09  aazqua: Obviously black got in a hole early on but this was not convincing play by white. I think this was ten to twelve year olds so it isn't surprising that the game lasted this long.
Dec-10-10  muratski: at move 93 Kubra should've snatched that b3 pawn and the game is drawn.Im sure she knows that too by now:)

  louispaulsen88888888: Yes, black could have gotten a R+B vs R endgame! A theoretically drawn position arises. But it’s worth playing out and hard to defend.
