If it becomes only clear after 500 moves that you cannot make even a tiny bit of progress, like simplfying or pushing a Pawn, and not after, say, 400 or 300 moves, the game must progress at excruciatingly slow pace. How many of these tiny bits of progress would you have to make to win? How many pieces have to be traded, how many pawns to be pushed? Multiply that by 300, and it seems a typical game will last between 10,000 and 100,000 moves...
