Sep-24-04  Rowson: Interesting game here...
Sep-24-04  fifhun: the character of French defence is one of best approach to beat computer
Sep-25-04  Rowson: Why so? i dont like to play the french against strong players becuase of the masses of theory on the opening but if you knew the lines i dont see why that would be such a problem.

  Chessical: <Rowson> I believe that <fifund> is referring to the often blocked and manoeuvering positions that are frequent in the French Defence. These are less susceptible to a computer's tactical flair, and exploit any deficiency in positional understanding.

  YouRang: So, did pocket-fritz resign? If not, how is a computer resignation determined? Did the computer evaluate that it was down by a certain number of points or something?
Dec-22-07  Doktorn: I would never do a move like 18... 0-0-0. Castling the king to the only open file on the board with queens and rocks left? "No way!" my amateur principles would tell my in a very stern manner.
Apr-02-08  Jason Frost: <Doktorn> Looks safer then 0-0
