Kibitzer's Corner
May-20-03  Rookpawn: This game looks like a Sicilian Defense setup with colors reversed (Maybe even a Dragon Variation with the fianchettoed bishop).
Jul-02-03  wunmu: It also looks like the Reti.
Jul-02-03  Dustin J.: It's a Sicilian but similiar to the English/Reti. I've been playing the King's Indian Defense as black though if I can use c5 I will.
Aug-13-03  ksadler: This game is annotated at for those who are interested.
Mar-18-04  Creator of Time: deep blue tends to go for draw every time it played, ibm sure intends that, to draw with Gary
Jul-28-04  chess4games: Deep Blue draws with Garry Kasparov. I wonder who asked draw to who first.
Jun-21-05  InspiredByMorphy: What was the point of 40. ...Bc7 ?
Sep-23-05  aw1988: No point, Black has no active plan
Oct-30-05  lentil: Looks like Kasparov took some Suttles lessons!
Dec-18-05  themaestro: G.K clearlt tried 2 use anti-computer setup.
Dec-18-05  weisyschwarz: <InspiredbyMorphy>, perhaps to attain 42...Rd8.
Feb-25-09  WhiteRook48: 1. d3?! is weird

  hudapri: Only game in GK's career with 1.d3
Apr-30-13  Fiona Macleod: It was after this game that Kasparov began insinuating that Deep Blue's handlers were cheating.
Feb-05-17  Impax: D3 is interesting
