    124 moves

    KORCHNOI/KARPOV: DRAWN by stalemate. Nimzo-Indian, Game 5, 1975 World Championship, 27-28-29 July, Baguio, Phillippines.

    This is the longest game I know of between two grandmasters in a serious game.

    The longest GM-GM game I have in my database is Murey-Rausis at the 1995 Philidor Memorial in Paris. It went 196 moves and ended in a draw. The longest non-draw was Short-Salov at Linares in 1990. It went 162 moves.
