  Announcements and Intro page  


Hopefully soon - as I first write this, (late Oct. 2002); - there will be a match between Kasparov and Deep Junior. And I want to be the first to bring you all the news, games, and everything else. 

Nov. 15th, 2002:  According to Reuters News Service ... and the ChessBase web site ... this match has been postponed again. Tentatively it will be held in January (or February) of 2002. Keep watching this page for all the results as they happen!!!

Nov. 29th 2002:  This just in - from the Internet and TWIC # 420. The match may be delayed once more. Now it is possibly to be scheduled in late January or early February of 2002. Additionally, because of all the violence and  terrorism in the Middle-East, the match venue might be moved from Jerusalem, (ISR)  to Jacksonville, FL. (USA)  Stay tuned for more details.

Today FIDE announced that it would be held in Manhattan, New York, from Jan. 23 to Feb. 2, with two "practice games" before that in Israel.

   Man vs. Machine    
Jan. 23rd, 2003. 
It seems to be definitely on, the first game is slated to be 
played the 26th. I feel - for the first time in a long time! - that this match will 
really happen. It looks to be great fun. My (chess) "Humans vs. Computers" 
web site will have regular reports and updates.  

The latest update is that  AOL  has joined forces with  X3D  to bring you the 
games, this definitely promises to be interesting. 

01.2003  Kasparov  is still slated to play  DEEP Junior  in a  match  in 
New York at the end of January (26th?) ... or maybe mid-February.  Thus far 
it has been a VERY bumpy road.  (Click
here, and see just below.) 

Questions, questions
23.09.2002 How will he fare against Deep Junior in the match scheduled for December this year? 
What is at stake and how will he proceed strategically? Why doesn't the US have exceptional 
chess talents and why are there so few top women players? These are some of the questions 
answered by Garry Kasparov in an interview that appeared in the New York Times. 
We bring you excerpts
here.  (From the ChessBase web site.)  

Hmmm
After considerable turbulence over the Christmas holidays (see reports below) the final details

January 24th, 2003. 
Not only will 
Kasparov  be playing  Deep Junior  (in New York City), but at virtually the same 
time, (Jan. 28th to Jan. 31st); GM E. Bareev  will be playing  Hiarcs 8.0  in the Netherlands.

I would also like to point out that this is the first (official) FIDE Chess World Championship, "Man versus Machine" Match. Kasparov gets like $500,000.00 for just showing up. (DJ gets 150K) The winner gets $250,000.00. (This sum is split if it is a draw.)

CNN and Spiegel go Chess
25.01.2003  This thing between Kasparov vs. Deep Junior in New York is going to be gigantic. CNN has a big report on the X3D press conference held on Thursday. Meanwhile Europe's largest news portal, Spiegel Online, has set up an entire mini-web devoted to the man vs. machine match and even set up their own live coverage using ChessBase technology.

February 06th, 2003:  My computer crashed, so I missed several games. 
The belated report was that games four and five were drawn. I was unable 
to watch either game, as my computer was inoperative. But informed sources 
tell me that the computer sacked unsoundly. (In game five.) Apparently Kasparov 
was shaken and allowed a perpetual. Game four was a Sicilian, where Garry 
missed or avoided the best line more than once. The machine was close to 
winning, but Kasparov eventually fought back to draw.  (More later.)
