Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-04-06  Knight13: Wow no kibitzing!
Oct-15-06  cotdt: Fritz 9 still makes the same mistakes this Deep Fritz (version 7?) made. Let's see what Fritz 10 can do. What amazes me is how Kramnik beat the computer in OPEN systems.
Jul-11-08  apexin: i just posted extensive analysis of every game in english.
Nov-06-08  KingG: Kramnik clearly played better than the computer in this match, but lost the 5th game due to a bad blunder, and the 6th one by trying to be 'entertaining'(which rarely works out for Kramnik). It's a shame, but just as with the Kasparov vs Junior and Kasparov vs Fritz matches the following year, it was clear that the human played the better chess despite the drawn result, which were largely due to uncharacteristic blunders.
Dec-03-08  Karpova: Similar to the 1993 WC matches Kasparov-Short World Championship Match (1993) and Karpov-Timman FIDE World Championship (1993) there were two matches between human beings and computer programs almost ten years later.

Fritz beat Junior in the BGN Computer Qualifier, 2001.04.24 to 2001.04.30 in Cadaques, Spain by the score of 12-11 in the Play-Offs:

So the winner Fritz played Kramnik in this match while Kasparov faced Junior in the FIDE Man-Machine WC (2003)

So the similarity consists of winner versus winner (Short vs Kasparov, Kramnik vs Fritz) and loser versus loser (Karpov vs Timman, Kasparov vs Junior).

  GrahamClayton: At the start of the match,it was found that the humid conditions made the chess pieces "sticky" and hard to use. The solution to the problem was to place them in a refrigerator prior to the start of each game.
Dec-06-08  sallom89: <GrahamClayton> are you serious ?!
Dec-06-08  positionalgenius: no he is kidding.
Dec-06-08  sallom89: <positionalgenius> lol, im kidding also, thanks.
