  ToTheDeath: Did the machine resign because it's losing the a7 pawn?
Apr-21-04  weepingwarrior: Yeah, I think so, cuz Rebel Tiger looks at the following line 26...Ne6 27. Qa7 c5 28. f5 gf5 29. Bf5 with a +2.08 advantage.
Apr-21-04  TrueFiendish: Although these programs don't tend to resign till they're at least a couple of pawns down. Strange.
Jul-28-04  chess4games: This is more like 1/2-1/2 than 1-0.

5. ... Bb4

what a poor strategy... of course it was 1995-Deep Blue ;-)

Jun-14-08  Stelling: <ToTheDeath> It is a long lapse between your question and my reply but as far as I know Deep Blue didn't resign. It lost on time.
Nov-02-14  Patanjali: Houdini 1.5a says that the advantage to white is only worth, at most, half a pawn.

Qxa7 Ne6 Bh3 Qc5+ Qxc5 Nd7xc5 g3 d4 b4 dxc3 bxc5 Rb8 Be6 fe6 Kf2 Rb2+ Re2 Rd8 a4 Rd5 (eval +0.49; depth 20 ply; 129M nodes)

Lost on time? That doesn't make sense either. It was only move 26! And I couldn't find any references that validate what you say here.
