  keypusher: Computers used to be absolutely in love with R-N1. I wonder why.
Jun-27-06  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.
