Never Ended Chess Match

Did you see that? Since when did a tennis match turn into a 3-day test match and in the process broke pretty much every record under the sun?

Well, since American John Isner and Frencman Nicolas Mahut decided to take their final set into an epic 138 games!

Isner eventually prevailed 6-4 3-6 6-7 7-6 70-68. Long but at least it all came to an end. Sad, really, since both guys are champions as far as I'm concerned.

In the wake of that match, CNN takes a look at past contests that, according to them, never quite ended. One contest that's in their list is a familiar one to chess fans.
