|Feb-27-05|| ||RookFile: Botvinnik wins on the rook file! :) |
|Mar-25-05|| ||muddywaters: i had sargon in the 80's on my old commodore 64, that was a terrible chessprogram, once i wanted to hit en passent and it didn't know it. and you couldn't promote to a kinight ar rook, only to a queen. funny program though, although i was a very little kid then. |
|Mar-25-05|| ||Sneaky: Later versions of Sargon were much better. It was ground-breaking technology at the time. I remember skimming though a book written by the authors Dan and Kathe Spracklen. It was one of the first programs that used piece-mobility and pawn-structure as part of its heuristics to evaluate positions, instead of simply bean-counting.|

|Mar-25-05|| ||keypusher: Thanks, Sneaky, interesting link. I was very impressed with Sargon back in the day. |
|Jun-14-05|| ||Warrush: Botvinnik did a great job on the kings rook file. Excellent last game!|
|Jun-14-05|| ||DanRoss53: Indeed! Classic anti-computer play here by Botvinnik letting the computer grab pawns while weaking the position.|
|Aug-28-05|| ||RookFile: I must say, when I try moves like
10. h3 against the computer, it just
eats the pawn, and 15 moves later, I'm resigning. Botvinnik's 10. h3 really impresses me here.
|Mar-14-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: The positional pawn sac against engines in the pre-1990s seemed to be almost like money in the bank.|
|Mar-14-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: and Botvinnik was 72 years old when he played this game.|
|Aug-17-11|| ||DiscoJew: Is this the last game? fully, completely?|
|Aug-10-17|| ||whiteshark: "The famous three-time world chess champion Mikhail Botvinnik played a game with Sargon in 1983 at Hamburg. He did not play his best moves but only tested the program's capabilities. Botvinnik himself was also involved in chess program development."|
