Sep-03-04  Knight13: Marked Draw Game.
Jan-31-11  hottyboy90: What I dont understand is that up to move 12 the game is exactly the same as Game 1 in the match. Now in the 1st game DB played Nb5 before Ne5 so why did it not repeat the moves like before.Lets not forget DB crushed Kasparov in that first game unless Ibm were responsible for the change in moves perhaps worrying that this time Garry had come up with a refutation to Nb5. I believe that if they had left the computer to its own devices it would have played the same move again which I believe to be the best move.
Jan-31-11  hottyboy90: I suspect that the computer had been tampered with on move 12.
Sep-30-13  dunican: <hottyboy90> the IBM programmers had the possibility to reprogram DB after each game, so the tampering with likely came between games rather than before particular moves.

By coin toss.

Mar-27-15  Ladyanavt: Deep blue was said to have been programmed by a team of chess experts. Perhaps they chose the openings to be considered. It's also possible that deep blue was fed some of Kasparov's previous games, say with the alapin sicilian and other possible openings that may arise.

Excuse me if I don't quote you further.

Jan-22-18  CowChewCud: The Deep Blue team should have kept playing on to test Kasparov's knowledge of endings. :-)
