GM Garry Kasparov vs. Deep
On this page, I will dedicate myself to all the
topics and games that occurred in this epic match. Eventually I plan on having
all the games, (downloadable in PGN format); perhaps a few of the better games
annotated. As I have a history of over 25 years with computers - and even have
served as a consultant to companies that make chess programs and computers - I
want to offer my insight to this match as well. An analysis of this situation.

Does anyone remember Garry crushed Deep Blue the first time around?
people do not recall that Deep Blue LOST the first match!)
was "Deep Thought," and what was its relation to D.B?
major computer was the first to play at the GM level?
Garry really lose the World Championship to a computer?
(The answer is no - - - see the comments just below.)
mistake did Garry make in playing the Caro-Kann Defense,
(a standard chess
opening); in the last game? (Of the 2nd match.)
Kasparov Lose The Chess World Championship
To A Computer?
Of course not. The simple answer is that Kasparov was playing basically an
exhibition match. It was NEVER stipulated that this match was for the Chess
World Championship. This was simply a match that Garry could make money from.
you research the subject, you will see that World Championship Matches are
always at least 24 games long. This is why - in one way - Garry's Match of 16
games vs. GM Vladimir Kramnik could not be considered a real match for the World
stomped Deep Blue in the first match.
it is true. In the first match of only six games, ---> despite the fact that
he dropped game #1, Garry blasted DB the first time around. The fact that he
could drop the first one and win clearly demonstrated the "big box"
was not quite ready for prime time. But all this was soon to change!
THOUGHT was the predecessor to Deep Blue.
brain-child of Carnegie-Mellon's Feng Hsu, Deep Thought was a monster. It was
also the predecessor to Deep Blue. After Hsu earned his Doctorate, IBM hired
him. Their mission? To be the first to defeat the reigning World Champion in a
game with traditional time limits. They succeeded pretty well, doing this in the
very first game.
Thought was probably the first machine/program
to play at the GM level.
the first to consistently beat masters.
program was light-years ahead of anything else. It took large strides on an
almost yearly basis. I remember when it played in the AL State Championships. It
won. Very impressive.
monthly, you would read in 'Chess Life' that Deep Thought had done
something else. While all the other machines were making almost no progress,
Deep Thought continued to improve and get better and better.
Garry had used some form of an off-beat Sicilian,
(Kalishnikov); I maintain he would have defeated Deep Blue.
Garry was having a VERY bad day, he would have won easily. Even Deep Blue II was
not up to Garry's standard. He basically fell into an opening trap and lost.
Practically any other opening would have won. Deep Blue II was a monster at
tactics, but had almost ZERO positional understanding. In this regard, the
programs they sell off-the-shelf are much superior to Deep Blue, at least in
this one particular aspect.
