It was asked here some time ago, how does a game of chess end, if both
players just pick by change one of the legal moves on their turn. I let
Nero 4 play some more random games and got following results:

1308 games were played.

White made 126 checkmates.
Black made 137 checkmates.
There were 161 stalemates.
There were 884 interrupted games. (No mate or stalemate in 200 moves, neither
                                   3 rep. nor 50 moves rule used.)

So it seems that 80% of random chess games are draws.

Does anyone (not) have same statistics about real chess games?
That would be interesting.
