Chess Machine

The machine plays the match in which the human mind for the first time had to acknowledge the computational superiority of semiconductors (Kasparov-Deep Blue, 6th Match, New York 1997) 1. e4 c6, 2. d4 d5, 3. Nc3 dxe4, 4.Nxe4 Nd7, 5. Ng5 Ngf6, 6. Bd3 e6, 7. N1f3 h6? After this known opening error, black has to cope with severe development issues from which he will not recover. After c4 in the 19th move, Kasparov resigns.

The unworldly chess-genius Robert James Fischer (1943-2008) on the question what he would play against God?
"I wouldn't stand a chance against Him with black, but with white I would just play Spanish. That is such a balanced game, He couldn't touch me. But maybe He'd play Sicilian? In that case, I'll just play the variation with Bishop c4. Should be able to make a draw with that."
