The maximum number of moves that can occur during a single chess game is 6350. This is because only 50 moves are allowed without a piece being captured, or a pawn being advanced before the game is avowed as a draw. So, if there are 16 pawns that have six moves each before they are promoted, then 16 x 6 makes 96 possible moves by the pawns alone. In addition to that, there are 30 pieces that can be captured during the game. So the maximum number of moves fulfilling the conditions of the rule is 126. Assuming that these moves happen as infrequently as is possible, there are at most 126 x 50 + 50 = 6350 moves in a game of Chess.
