|Dec-31-07|| ||Samagonka: I can see Garry changed from his usual sacrificial tactics he plays against humans. It worked!|
|Dec-31-07|| ||Chess Carnival: I'm not an expert in computer chess, but the quiet opening played here does have "anti-computer" flavor to me.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||RookFile: Beautiful game. Kasparov was terrific with white in this Semi Slav type games.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||apexin: A good example of typical anti-computer opening strategy.Looks like Deep blues first mistake was 11...Nh5
rather prematurely moving the knight twice.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||xrt999: 40...bxc6 is a total blunder by the computer....I dont get it.|
Even on my patzer CM, it plays 40...Rxc6, which it rates (+1.32)
It rates 40.bxc6 (+3.32) at a mere 10 plies.
|Dec-31-07|| ||zb2cr: 30. ... Bb8 is truly terrible, as there is no possible way to extricate the Black Bishop--and more importantly, the Rook at a8. 30. ... Bd8 at least makes it theoretically possible to eventually rejoin the Rooks, by the cumbersome procedure of ... Nc6 followed by ... Bf6.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||kevin86: Deep Blue "blew it". The arrangement of black's queen side pieces appear like Lucille Ball in a trunk.|
The bishop at b8 shuts itself AND the rook out of the game-virtually the power of a queen locked into a trunk.
|Dec-31-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: Great pun, but it might have been even better for this game: Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997, in which Kasparov, in essence, accused Deep Blue of cheating. Of course, the pun actually used for the 1997 game ("Deep Blue See [sic]", implicitly rejecting Kasparov's accusation of human intervention) was also terrific.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||ajile: The anti-computer strategy I've seen is to keep the position closed and locked preferably like in this game with a space advantage. The computer failed to see that it's pieces were being slowly restricted and strangled to death. Kasparov correctly played to close the position and then reduce Black's counterplay to zero. After this happens the computer is basically lost without any pawn breaks or space to move.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||MadBishop: The pun "Rage Against The Machine" is actually the name of a heavy/death metal band.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||CapablancaFan: This is actually the 2nd time <chessgames> has used this pun. Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 Regarding this game though, Deep Blue begins to go "wrong" IMO with 11...Nh5? A totally time wasting move that does nothing but result in the program spending more tempos moving it around everytime it's attacked. A better continuation was 11...Rc8! to shore up some strength on the semi-open c-file. Had Blue made this simple change, it would have changed the whole course of this game. The proof? Please look at the final position.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||MostlyAverageJoe: This game is a testimony of how far the software & hardware have progressed since 1996. A mere 3 minutes/move analysis (averaging less time per move than would be available in a regulation game after getting out of the book) shows many improvements for the black (and very few for white). Here's what Hiarcs 11.2MP picked with 0.10 threshold for reported improvements:
13... Rc8 (+0.12, a 0.11 improvement)
15... dxc4 (+0.28, a 0.19 improvement) -- this move would've prevented the later lockup of black's DSB.
17.cxd5 (+0.50, a 0.33 improvement) -- the only move found where Hiarcs considers white to have lost some of the advantage.
19...Nf8 (+0.39, a 0.20 improvement)
Now Kasparov grinds out small improvements that do not register with the 0.10 threshold.
33...Re8 (+1.12, a 0.52 improvement)
There are more alleged inaccuracies after that, black's game deteriorates rapidly, and, by move 42, white's advantage is about (+4.25).
I think that this deterioration could be caused by bad time management and the approaching time control, but this does not explain Deep Blue playing 40...bxc6 instead of Rxc6 (a 1.22 inaccuracy), or 41...Kh6 instead of Kg8 (a 0.71 inaccuracy).
|Dec-31-07|| ||amadeus: <MAJ: 17.cxd5 (+0.50, a 0.33 improvement) -- the only move found where Hiarcs considers white to have lost some of the advantage.>|
Rybka, at 15 ply, evals Nf3 as 2 centipawns better than cxd5.
|Dec-31-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Gary the great, systematically outplays Deep Blue as if the Computer went into Deep Sleep. Simply a wonderful game.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||Jimfromprovidence: Has anyone evaluated 17... Bc7 for black instead of 17...Bb4? The bishop ends up there on move 21 anyway at the cost of several tempi of development.|
|Dec-31-07|| ||MostlyAverageJoe: <amadeus: Rybka, at 15 ply, evals Nf3 as 2 centipawns better than cxd5>|
Give it 3 minutes on a fast CPU with dual core and it should get deeper than 15 plies. Hiarcs got to 18 plies in 3 minutes (after spending 3 minutes apiece on preceding moves, so it had some of the hash pre-computed).
In any case, improvements for white are not that important here. It would be interesting to know what improvements would Rybka find for the black, and whether they correlate with those from Hiarcs. If you'd like to run such an experiment, make sure it does its analysis in forward scan mode, not backsliding -- the backslide does not simulate the conditions occurring during the game.

|Nov-26-08|| ||brucejavier: great game by the great garry!|
|Jan-10-09|| ||WhiteRook48: and the trapped rook and bishop! Even computers would resign in this position!|
|Feb-02-11|| ||hottyboy90: WhiteRook48 the computer did resign!|
|Feb-02-11|| ||jmactas: Holy queenside congestion batman!|
