  RookFile: Well, 5.... Bb4+ followed by 6.... Bf8 is pretty silly.

No. Gazza took on about thirty blindfold in 1985 in (I think) Hamburg.

Jun-27-06  WMD: <mack>, that's news to me, but here's one: Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997

Jun-27-06  mack: Sorry, huge slip up there - he took on thirty computers in 1985, PLUS another one blindfold. Or something like that. Bollocks, I think I said something equally dumb in the latest Kingpin.

Jun-28-06  mack: Fair play.
Feb-19-07  ianD: Beautiful finish.
Jul-30-07  piroflip: computers had to start somewhere but this is awful play by Sargon.
