Feb-22-04  TrueFiendish: Don't worry, you haven't failed: the computer had no winning opportunities.
Aug-26-05  Jaymthetactician: Thats a thing I noticed about Shredder, allways wanting to exchange queens. I like to refuse to keep the major piece endgames alive.

May-08-07  Tomlinsky: Shirov presents this game on his latest Slav DVD for Chessbase. In his closing remarks he dryly states:

"I am giving this lecture a few days before the match Kramnik against Fritz and I am almost sure that Kramnik has no chance against the computer program. Basically our time, human times, are over but in 2001 it was not like that".
