Hello everybody, I'll try to keep it short:

Was there ever a conclusive answer found to the question: It is possible to play forever and keep on doing perfect clears?

Shuey has done some research in this field and there are some ancient threads by him but I cannot seem to get an answer to the question.

I'm interested in this because tetris is basically 'solved' by playing forever:

If one could play forever while doing perfect clears, that means tetris is actually really skill testing. It also means that 4-wideing is an inferior strategy to doing these PC's.

Hope some vetereans manage to find an answer, because I certainly couldn't.

It was found that there exist some small percent of 10 piece sequences that are NOT pc'able.

However, you could just stack another semi-pc on top and then use the extra pieces to continue PC'ing, using 20 piece PC's

Like many setups here, it is useful if your opponent doesn't move and you get 4 Ts in a row.
