|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: i know. i was really excited about watching the coverage on tv. oh, well. |
|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: the queen-side pawns are locked up. fritz has the rest of its piece on the 1st and 2nd rank |
|Nov-13-03|| ||mack: Kasparov's really going to need to be careful time-wise now |
|Nov-13-03|| ||Nova1990: I have digital cable and looked ahead to see that they've got something called the "Ultimate Heavy Athletics" scheduled after tennis. I'd like to take this opportunity to say to the ESPN pinheads who decided not to return to the game, "YOU SUCK!"|
Unfortunately, it looks like Fritz's position is better at this point (because Garry's K is somewhat exposed and it will be hard for him to get an attack on the K-side.
|Nov-13-03|| ||MoonlitKnight: This looks like a digital win. |
|Nov-13-03|| ||mack: ... or is it? 28. cxd6? |
|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: garry's chances are looking better now that he isn't so constricted |
|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: i would say good chances for a draw but garry might have enough time to enter the second time control with a good position. or even enter it at all. |
|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: Kh7! kasparov wants those rooks on the g-file. fritz has a great defence with the 3 pawns and the knight. or the "3 offensive linemen and a runningback to stop the blitz" |
|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: does kaspy's move Rg7 give white the pawn on e5? |
|Nov-13-03|| ||chessgames.com: For those following today's game from home: ESPN is still covering the game; but it was switched from ESPN2 to ESPNEWS. Flip around on your cable dial and you'll find it. |
|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: i don't have ESPNEWS! arrrggg |
|Nov-13-03|| ||drukenknight: is there a website showing game two? With all this 3-D technology you would think they can show the game live on the internet. I tried the X3D site which promises coverage but I couldnt find it, or maybe its not there. |
|Nov-13-03|| ||chessgames.com: Kasparov just blundered; I think we'll probably have the moves soon when Garry resigns. |
|Nov-13-03|| ||MoonlitKnight: Ouch! What a blunder! |
|Nov-13-03|| ||hickchess99: <drukenknight> go to chessbase.com, there is a link on the right of the page that says "live coverage" |
|Nov-13-03|| ||equanimus: Kasparov just resigned on game two! |
|Nov-13-03|| ||Nova1990: ARGHHHHHH!!!! It took some time to find the ESPN News but Kasparov already resigned!!! |
|Nov-13-03|| ||chessgames.com: Here's the new game > Kasparov vs X3D Fritz, 2003 |
|Nov-14-03|| ||lostemperor: <That's what I was saying!> My premonition has come true unfortunately. At this moment I can only feel sorry for Kasparov, losing by a blunder. They wrote it was the 13th (although the computer could care less). I wasn't even aware. I'm also born the 13th like Kasparov (one year and a month difference). A bad omen, I start to believe!|
<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 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.
|Nov-14-03|| ||PinkZebra: I think Mr. Kasparov had better chances with 33)R-f4. This holds the back rank and attacks f7. |
|Nov-14-03|| ||Bad Star: <PinkZebra> 33.♖f4 ♖d8 |
|Jun-19-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: See also http://www.angelfire.com/fl5/human_....|
|Aug-22-08|| ||Bobsterman3000: Kasparov had the most incredulous look on his face after 12...Nxf2 |
He was filled with wonder, fear, indecision, excitement, dread, nervousness... you name it. He really wanted to punish the computer for the pawn grab and knew he'd soon gain major initiative with his superior development, but you could tell that he feared that the Fritz had all possible variations worked out...
|Apr-13-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 12...Nxf2... computers overvalue material|
