  SuperPatzer77: Holy Toledo!!! This computer (X3D Fritz) has finally resigned to a human being like Gary Kasparov. I thought almost all the chess computers would refuse to resign - LOL.

Bravo, Kasparov!! Kasparov must have smiled at this computer because it resigns. Naturally, it is not premature. Kasparov creates powerful pressure on the Queen side.

  SuperPatzer77: <lefthandsketch: in response to argishti- no, this is the greatest anti-computer game ever: Rybka v.s. Hikaru Nakamura 2008- six underpromotions and mate with 5 bishops. >

<Lefthandsketch> Yeah, it is very interesting. I want to mention to you: Crafty (Computer) vs Hikaru Nakamura - ICC Blitz 2007 with five underpromotions and mate with six knights.

It is awesome, <Lefthandsketch>, right?

  Once: <SuperPatzer77: I thought almost all the chess computers would refuse to resign - LOL.>

More likely Fritz's operators decided that they had seen enough and resigned on behalf of the computer.

Modern chess software can be made to resign early, later or never. Just tweak the settings.

  lefthandsketch: super patzer- I wanted to list that one too- I think it is something nakamura likes to do in blitz games with computers to further humiliate them. In any case, it's hilarious anti-computer absurdity.

  SuperPatzer77: <Lefthandsketch> Yeah, that's awfully hilarious below:

White King represents the British investigator Ichabod Crane. Six Black Knights represent the six headless horsemen in the scary town of Sleepy Hollow, England. LOL

That's what I wrote in the game between Crafty (White) and Hikaru Nakamura (Black) - a hilarious commentary.

  playground player: Perhaps the computer got dispirited.
Dec-07-08  WhiteRook48: How can the computer resign?
Dec-07-08  tatarch: This game was featured live in its entirety on ESPN-- the title of the program was "Man vs. Machine." ESPN tried to do move-by-move color commentary throughout, like you would hear for other sporting events. I remember thinking how hokey it sounded, since none of the commentators really understood what Kasparov was doing anyway.
Jan-12-09  jovack: game would have been much better if the computer was forced to play to the end.

It's a computer, what does it care if it's going to lose eventually.

Feb-25-09  WhiteRook48: why not 45. h4?
Apr-13-09  WhiteRook48: computers can't resign!
Apr-27-09  CalvinT: Kasparov made it look way too easy! I remember watching these games back ESPN, if only K could have one the match.
Apr-28-09  Udit Narayan: Garry playing anti-computer chess FTW!!!
Jun-27-09  suplexer: Mr Kasparov dished out a well deserved life sentence on the machine known as 'fritz x 3d'
Jul-06-09  WhiteRook48: 14...Bd6?!!?!?!?!??

  Colonel Mortimer: It's all about sending a Black trooper to f4 and getting a pawn break going on there - now how do you translate that into binary?
Feb-10-10  aazqua: Poor silicon beast. This is the perfect anti computer game. Lock up the position, maneuver on the wings, take 20 moves to line your pieces up and then poor salt water on the poor things circuits.
Feb-21-10  JohnstownChess: I dont have the skill to beat computers..so usually what i like to do is give myself odds..like take away its queen a rook and both bishops...damn i suck...
Apr-18-10  SoundWave: Man 1 - Computer 0..take that Fritz! It didn' stand a chance against King Kasparov.
Nov-02-12  Patanjali: Does anyone know when Fritz was out of book? was it after 6. c5 or 7. b4 ?
Jun-01-14  mdt: @WhiteRook48 if 15.cxd6 Nxb6 traps Q

  DarthStapler: Why do people say computers can't resign? It's easy to program them to do so if the evaluation of their position falls below a certain number.
