- I hate computer chess. The essence of chess
is that it's a game which tests the mental
capabilities of a human being. I'm not impressed when the latest Deep InsertAdjective beats a 2700
"Hey, I like my computer, but I hate playing chess against it. Just as I like my car but would never run a race with it. Competing against machines suck. I'll take the imperfect human struggle any day."

One of the MANY reasons I hate Garry Kasparov:
"I wanted to prove to myself first of all that I play better than others. I did. What happened today had very little to do with my opponent. I simply collapsed under the pressure of playing my last game"
- Kasparov, commenting on his loss to Veselin
Topalov at his final Linares tournament.
