Sep-24-04  Rowson: Who is Lev Alburt he seems to have beaten Deep thought a few times.
Sep-25-04  IT4LICO: i think a really bad bad move is 29 c3 ,it closes the way to the rock and leaves go the central pawns...

  schnarre: <Rowson> Lev Alburt is perhaps THE authority on the Alekhine Defense. This game shows why. "The Alekhine for the Tournament Player" is one of his works.

  keypusher: You certainly can't accuse Deep Thought of resigning too early.
Mar-25-05  RookFile: Lol! Kind of reminds me of at least
one of the Greenblatt - Fischer games.... :)

  keypusher: Amazing how badly Deep Thought plays the opening -- Bb5 and Qh5 are completely pointless as far as I can see. Clearly the programmers didn't put in much of an opening book. It's also amazing how much more positional sense Fritz 8 has running on my little laptop than Deep Thought had running on (I think) a mainframe.

  schnarre: <keypusher> Doesn't bode well for the programmers of Deep Thought does it?

  KingG: <keypusher> 7.Qh5 is a bit strange, but 5.Bb5 was played by Tal, Tal vs Lutikov, 1969.

  Bobsterman3000: Wow, I wish I could handle the Alekhine like this as black.

More than in any other opening, while playing I often find my opponent making moves that I consider objectively weak, but I am not able to take advantage!!

Feb-16-09  darth shitious: the computer played like a patzer.
Mar-02-15  rollingrook5: Wow, you can really see the comp degenerate in the endgame. Maybe it ran on vacuum tubes.
