  lostemperor: Here as an inside information about the program Fritz, is a piece of my kibitz from a Kasparov vs X3D Fritz game. Kasparov has lost his former game to this computer.

<'On the other hand, I am a little proud. I had a small part in the making of Fritz! It was in 1986. Fritz (still called Quest) was playing in my former club in The Hague. Frans Morsch, the creator, operated the computer himself. Perhaps he (Frans) was seen on ESPN. It was just a small chessbord not a terminal and Fritz and I (still 1550) were playing in the B group.

Quest (Fritz) won all it's games except for one. I, yours truly, made a draw. I was lucky Frans offered me a draw. At the end Morsch, only 1850 player showed me where I could have won the game. I saw he was not satisfied with his creation's performance. He must have gotten that weakness out of Fritz the same night. Congretulations Frans, you have done a great job since then! If I can find that game I'll post it.'>

  lostemperor: For those who thinks fritz (and other programs) were not that strong in 1991, I have to say thats not correct. Fritz in 1991 year score a 2801 performance, perhaps the first program to reach 2800, in a GM blitz tournament and shared first place with Kasparov, all the top players present. Kasparov won the tie break 3-1 I guess.

  acirce: But computers have always been stronger in blitz, compared to humans, than at longer time controls right?

  lostemperor: Right acirce. Today human has very little chance against computers at blitz, other than a few half points now and then. At ordinary games topplayers, like Kasparov, and machines are dead equal. That's why I think computers must participate at human WC tournaments since in the eye of the public we have already lost. There must be a new generation of weaker players who can master to beat the computer and restore human dignity and than lose to Kasparov.

Regular GM's still win Fritz on occasionally. Although they usually lose quite alot before the win one.

Jun-28-05  Kangaroo: To me, it looks like in 1991 Bronstein was much stronger than Fritz: no human partner would make such a silly move as <6... Ba6> (?) - a theoretical move <6... Bb4> is more "normal".

The intuitive attack by Bronstein could be hardly refuted.
