For example: 1.Ke8 2.hxg3 3.gxf4 7.f8=B 8.Bb4 13.f8=B 14.Bfe7 18.Ka6 20.Bxh6 21.Bf4 24.h8=R 26.Rxc6 27.Rxc4 29.Ra8 30.Bb8 32.Ba5-c7 33.Ka7 35.a6 !=
So, with wPa6 that should already not be possible.

Is it so important to say « without capture « ?
Is there already a longer position « with captures » ?

Yes, the longest has 173 moves with and 119 moves without promoted force. See PDB P1333509 and P1273550. In long series-movers captures are usually quite important to get small changes in the position that add length.

Thanks to Václav for the cook that I should have seen…
Would like to correct this with wBd7 instead of wPa7 and one move shorter – a ser-!=65. The solution remains unchanged besides after 1.Bc8 2. Ba6 everything is one move less. Maybe you can test again?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
