Aug-16-16  WorstPlayerEver: Not a clear loss. Not at all.
Aug-17-16  WorstPlayerEver: PS I am referring to this game, not a go game.

Rybka 4: 11... Nh7 12. Bg3 Ng5 13. Nh4 Nf6 14. Qd3 Bd7 (loses pretty quickly)

Yeah, but ironically 14... b5 is a far better take.

Oct-16-16  wtpy: Belgradegambit, some early poetry was likely sung, so in a sense the Nobel prize was just coming full circle.

  RookFile: The Petrov Defense would have been a good choice for Kasparov. It was certainly something he knew well (for example, he used it against Karpov), and it is lot safer for black than this nonsense.

As a matter of fact, not only poems as we think of them but things we now think of as great works of literature (such as the Iliad and the Odyssey) were sung.

And if you look at traditions in Arabic verse, *all* of those poems were sung.

Oct-16-16  morfishine: Lets see, Joel Benjamin with a computer beats Kasparov, who doesn't have a computer

Am I supposed to be impressed?

Now, you see, this is what you get if you're Kasparov and you play the Karpov Variation.

  Robyn Hode: One amusing thing is that Stockfish 7, a free program, would mop the floor with Deep Blue.

According to wiki,
<In June 1997, Deep Blue was the 259th most powerful supercomputer according to the TOP500 list, achieving 11.38 GFLOPS on the High-Performance LINPACK benchmark.>

Well my current Mac laptop with an i5 processor can do 18.74 GFLOPS, almost twice as fast. Not to mention the progress in AI after 20 years.

I would be really disappointed if Deep Blue can hold up against any of the current chess engines.

Oct-17-16  Mendrys: <morfishine: Lets see, Joel Benjamin with a computer beats Kasparov, who doesn't have a computer Am I supposed to be impressed?>

Joel Benjamin merely consulted with the team that created Deep Blue, he didn't play any of the games so I don't think your point is valid.

Oct-17-16  WorstPlayerEver: <Mendrys>

You don't know. That's exactly why Garry asked for Deepie's output... and didn't get it.

That proves nothing. In any case the logs were released later and nobody has been able to provide any compelling evidence that there was ever any cheating. Of course the logs could have been altered but that is besides the point! Most of the speculation around the cheating is based on the fact that Gary asked for the logs after game 2 and didn't get them. They just could have as easily modified them then as well.

To me it seems clear. Gary had laid out a clever trap for Deep Blue in game 2 that it didn't fall for. When he got toasted instead he became psychologically tilted and played poorly, as evidenced in this game or was the Deep Blue team accused of cheating in this game as well?

  RookFile: Kasparov underestimated Deep Blue's strength. In the end, it's a simple as that.
Oct-18-16  WorstPlayerEver: <Mendrys>

Really? So why they dismantled DB? To destroy the evidence. What else? DB team just put a psychological trick on Kasparov.

If that were true, which it is not - One bank is at the National Museum of American History while the other bank is at another museum, it still would not prove anything. This is specious logic at its best.

It's really down to what RookFile said - "Kasparov underestimated Deep Blue's strength..."

You're only saying that because you haven't seen the pictures of Joel Benjamin chained inside Deep Blue. They're a little blurred, but it's clearly him.
