|Dec-03-04|| ||Knight13: It plays like a 2200 rated computer. Every IM or GM can beat this computer for sure. |
|Dec-03-04|| ||Spassky69: I'm thinking more around 2000. I think I could crush it. |
|Dec-03-04|| ||sandyobrien: yeah, about 2000. |
|Dec-03-04|| ||Knight13: I don't think I could crush it but I am sure I can play a draw on this computer, if it's rated 2000. It's year 1982. The computers won't very strong. |
|Dec-04-04|| ||erasmus: Anybody could crush this computer. All you need is a hammer. |
|Dec-04-04|| ||Knight13: <erasmus: Anybody could crush this computer. All you need is a hammer.> What we mean is that we beat it easily, not crushing in reality. ;) |
|Sep-27-05|| ||BishopBerkeley: With this game, Mikhail Botvinnik becomes the earliest former World Chess Champion to play Chess against a computer (at least, according to our database). Robert James Fischer had played against a computer earlier, but he was a later champion:|

|Mar-08-07|| ||aazqua: Ouch. This computer looks like complete crap. Its hard to believe this thing is master strength.|
|Mar-08-07|| ||Benzol: Have Smyslov or Spassky played m/any games against computers?|
|May-27-11|| ||Domdaniel: As a pioneer of chess programming, Botvinnik must have played earlier games against computers. Perhaps not under formal conditions though.|
|May-27-11|| ||Marmot PFL: <simultaan Duitsland 1982> Were the other players humans or computers?|
|May-27-11|| ||BobCrisp: <Botvinnik> talked a good game but his own computer chess researches never got much beyond the drawing board:|
|Aug-10-17|| ||borabc: Who submitted this pun ?
It's so bad ( good )
|Aug-10-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: "Simultaan Duitsland" sounds pretty Dutch to me.|
|Aug-10-17|| ||DarthStapler: Another pun of mine!|
|Aug-10-17|| ||offramp: <WorstPlayerEver: "Simultaan Duitsland" sounds pretty Dutch to me.>|
Duitsland is the Dutch word for Germany. A Dutch reporter must have sneaked into Germany and secretly recorded the game score, probably on a hidden micro-camera.
|Aug-10-17|| ||offramp: Max Euwe was still playing in 1980 & 1981. I would have thought that he would have played a chess computer if he was given the chance. However, if he did then there is no record of it.|
|Aug-10-17|| ||Sneaky: There was a time when if you attended a simul with a computer handy, and explained you'd like the GM to play the computer, they welcomed you with open arms. Not only was it a novelty, besides, everybody knew that the best computer could be trounced by a 2000 player. |
These days if you tried that, I think it would be frowned upon.
|Aug-10-17|| ||whiteshark: related <Quote of the Day>|
"I personally programmed the computer for chess months ago. I gave the machine an understanding of the game equal to my own. The computer cannot make an error. And, assuming that I do not either, the best that could normally be hoped for would be stalemate after stalemate."
|Aug-10-17|| ||Marmot PFL: < Max Euwe was still playing in 1980 & 1981.>|
I was in a tournament in 1981 when they announced his death and had a moment of silence before the games started.
|Aug-10-17|| ||morfishine: What's the point of this low quality crapola of a game?|
|Aug-10-17|| ||RookFile: Black could have safely resigned somewhere around move 16.|
|Aug-10-17|| ||RookFile: I take it The Turk doesn't count as a computer? :)|
