Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-05  Koster: A game from the past, when humans still ruled chess. The greedy machine grabs the exchange and Browne makes him pay. I heard GM Browne's postgame analyses of several games during the 80s and was astounded at the number and depth of the lines he looked at during a game. Compared to most of his combinations this game was child's play.
Mar-14-09  Michael1234567891011: Why doesn't Browne just play rf6?
Mar-14-09  Granny O Doul: Good times.
Mar-14-09  Kinghunt: Because Deep Thought resigned. :P
Aug-18-15  Bruce Graham: In this game Walter gave Deep Thought a good lesson. Deep Thought at the time did not understand the value of a bishop controlling an "open diagonal" or the value of a "permanent pin," and Walter exploited the weaknesses beautifully and won the game fairly easily. Deep Thought put up quite a struggle, but it was not enough. From Behind Deep Blue: Building the Computer that Defeated the World Chess Champion Book by Feng-hsiung Hsu
May-24-19  Hokey pokey: Wasn't this game played in Long Beach California? The contraption was plugged in Pittsburgh but the GM was in Cali.
Jun-30-20  rwbean: It may well be that DT was lost as soon as it played 13. g3 ... against an opponent like Browne.
