This is game # 7. (Kramnik vs. Deep Fritz)

17.10.2002   News flash: Game seven drawn   

Game seven of the Man vs. Machine event in Bahrain ended in a draw after Vladimir Kramnik was unable to capitalize on a typical anti-computer position. Fritz in fact threatened to turn tables on the world champion, who ended up defending for the draw. The score is now 3.5:3.5. A full report and pictures will follow soon.  Click  here  to read more.

It seems I missed the entire game. I worked until nearly 3 AM on the computer. Then 
I got up early to give an Internet Chess lesson. Afterwards, I finished off a couple of 
new chess web pages. Then I was tired, so I took a short nap. By the time I thought
about it, (sometime between 10 - 11 AM);  the whole show was over. Rats! 
(I will give my thoughts on this game later, when I have had time to spend at least 
 an hour with this game.) 


 10/17/02, approx. 1300 hours:   A couple of my Internet students, (and, of 
course!, yours truly); spent over an hour analyzing this game on the  ICC  server. 
One student had  ChessMaster 8000 pumping the whole time, he copied quite 
a bit of the analysis onto the screen for me to see. (I was running  Fritz 7  in the 
background, under  ChessBase 8.0.) 
After a brief analysis, this is my take on the game: 

After such a short time, it is hard to be sure - but apparently neither player missed 
anything major. The computer very stupidly and foolishly allowed the position to 
be closed. This could have been the end  ... Kramnik could engineer a breakthrough 
at his leisure. But I am not sure if Black found the right plan. Anyway the machine 
discovered a pretty good move (f4!), and it appeared that neither side could make 
any progress. At this point, the box began to repeat moves ... Kramnik - perhaps 
with a new found respect for the program after losing TWO! straight - decided 
not to press matters and allowed Fritz to make a draw.
