|in game #201270, we were over in just 4 turns, because of a crazy layout.|

|Why did white pass in the longest game? (game #193006) He would have won anyway with a better tie-breaker. I would say: disqualified for the longest game position.|
|Not only would the tie-breaker have been worse, I even would have lost the game if I connected the last city (6:7). This game is a nice example that it's possible that the only winning move is passing.|
|Oops, my mistake. Sorry missed a point.|
