Jul-28-04  chess4games: Interesting game.
Aug-21-06  I3illieJoe: This game should be game of the day...
May-04-07  iccsumant: Hey, do you want to know the history of this deep blue-Kasparov game? Check my blog for the great videos about the deep blue-Kasparov game. I guarantee that you would love it. Here is the link: http://www.chess-malaysia.blogspot....
Aug-05-09  Kinghunt: So what I want to know is if Kasparov ever had a win and made a slight inaccuracy or if he was just really close to winning but Deep Blue defended well. Any thoughts?
Aug-23-09  WhiteRook48: black can do a perpetual but if white is not careful the win can turn into a loss
Aug-23-11  SeanBurdine: This game cost Kasparov the match. He had to play Game 6 the very next day -- not a single day of rest in between -- and was psychologically devastated by seeing a seemingly certain win turn into a draw. Thus, the crushing 19-move defeat and the passing of the title of World's Chess Champion to a computer, an honor humans have never been able to wrest back since.
Jul-16-12  nitsud33: why not 50.Re2? any prob with this
Jul-08-13  yefri: hi nitsud33. After 50.Re2: 50..Rd1+. Then 51. Ka2 Ra1+ 52. Kb2 c3+ 53. Kc2 Rc1++ Mate. If b) 51. Kb2 or c) 51. Kc2 will not help using the same black move (c3 and Rook control row 1)
Jul-14-16  saintdufus: <the passing of the title of World's Chess Champion to a computer>

Actually that didn't happen, as this was only an exhibition match, not a title match.

However, this match did peremptorily prove that computers are stronger than humans at chess, which may have been what you meant.

Jun-04-17  Xonatron: 44. Rg7+ is coming in at +2.80 for Kasparov on Stockfish 8 at depth 39/91+ (after 8m:10s):
