Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-05  aragorn69: Impressive how easy it often seems when a human manages to beat a computer... It was true in those days, and IMO it is still true today.
Jun-28-05  WMD: I saw this game live but I don't remember what Vishy was wearing.
Jun-28-05  chesswonders: Do more recent computers like Hydra or Fritz chose Caro-Kann ?
Jun-28-05  MUG: <chesswonders> Good observation, I don't think they do. Personally though, I would like to see strong computers play more dynamic or unclear openings. Such as:

S Megaranto vs Shredder, 2005

Wouldn’t openings like the Kings Gambit suit their obvious tactical strengths more then, say, the Ruy Lopez?

Jun-28-05  chesswonders: I am not sure about computers playing gambits. If the computers are 'fed' who their opponent in the game is going to be and his ELO rating for example, then probably they can be programmed to play 'according' to the opponent's strength! Say, play gambits against 'weaker' opponents. That should be a nice and interesting experiment. As for Ruy Lopez, yes we do see it often with computers and offers good chances for both colours.
Jun-28-05  vraja: Anand's style in this game reminds of the simplicity of Capa's !!!

Jun-28-05  shenoyn: Yes, Anand is the epitome of logic and simplicity. Tactical battles will doubtless be won by the machine hands down. The only hope is to have a quiet position where positional play becomes vital. But Adams' recent experience with Hydra suggests that even that last bastion of human superiority - a feel for position - has fallen.

Favorable tactics come from a favorable position, if you have that, you have a lot.

Adams is not in the best of form, not to mention that (although he may be quite good at his peak) he is not the best opponent. Perhaps this match just shows how out of shape he is compared with previous "versions". The peaked Adams should actually do fairly well.

Jun-28-05  csmath: <<Do more recent computers like Hydra or Fritz chose Caro-Kann ?>>

Yes they do. It depends on the opening book choices, it is nothing more than a statistical exercise. As far as program evaluation goes they pretty much agree on e5 as a response to e4. In fact if they are analysing from the move #1 you would never see Sicilian from them. ;-))

Oct-15-07  xeroxmachine: This really an endgame to enjoy.

  wwall: I think Black had the draw until 35...h5? Black should be able to draw after 35...h6.
