    hi,

    i think it is 192 moves before resignation ,, ??

    did it come (176) in the 2nd game by mistake?

  2. Hi Omar,

    Nice attention to detail on your part, thank you for your comment/question.

    Actually the last move of the game really is the one mentioned; the rest is a variation showed on the Cyberoro game commentary – but I don’t know how to mark it as such in SGF.
