Vladimir Kramnik (2807) – Deep Fritz
Brains in Bahrain (8), 19.10.2002 [D68]
Kramnik allows early simplifications, so as to avoid any risks, and not suffer
the same fate as Kasparov did in his last game against Deep Blue.

An old maneuver to reduce the pressure.

White has an isolated d-pawn, but this weakness is of no consequence, as all
his pieces are active.

Kramnik’s draw offer was accepted. Kramnik started very well in the match
and was leading 3-1, but he suffered two defeats because of the machines
tactical power. So man and machine have completely different strengths and
weaknesses in chess, which makes these matches all the more fascinating. I am
already curious as to whether Kasparov will manage to beat Deep Junior in
