Comp Chomps, Chumps & Challenges CageFredthebear
Compiled by fredthebear

The silicon challenge to human observation, intellect and resolve. Artificial intelligence has a massive data storage advantage and faster, deeper, wider computations. The brain has far more creativity, intuition, daring and guile.

Always remember that a computer can do only what it is programmed to do. One glitch and it's a no-go zero. Meanwhile, the wooden board and pieces stand in silence, waiting for your fingers to march them along toward the enemy they stare at.

"Chess computers do not sweat during time pressure and commit costly blunders. Furthermore, the strength of these programs (over and above their faultless recall processes) lies in their capacity to make relatively superficial tactical decisions with incredible speed. Positional values, long-range strategy, aesthetic judgment, and political astuteness remain staples of human performance, man vs. machine results in the foreseeable future to the contrary not withstanding." — Ira Carmen

"Chess is a sport. The main object in the game of chess remains the achievement of victory." — Max Euwe

"It is a profound mistake to imagine that the art of combination depends only on natural talent, and that it cannot be learned." — Richard Reti

"The most powerful weapon in chess is to have the next move."— David Bronstein

"You win some, you lose some, and your losses are never made up to you. She will simply have to do without; like it or not, she must face her losses and her helplessness to undo them." — Sheldon B. Kopp

The Stag Seeing Himself In The Water

Beside a placid, crystal flood,
A stag admired the branching wood
That high on his forehead stood,
But gave his Maker little thanks
For what he called his spindle shanks.
"What limbs are these for such a head! –
So mean and slim!" with grief he said.
"My glorious heads overtops
The branches of the copse;
My legs are my disgrace."
As thus he talked, a bloodhound gave him chase.
To save his life he flew
Where forests thickest grew.
His horns, – pernicious ornament! –
Arresting him wherever he went,
Did unavailing render
What else, in such a strife,
Had saved his precious life –
His legs, as fleet as slender.
Obliged to yield, he cursed the gear
Which nature gave him every year.

Too much the beautiful we prize;
The useful, often, we despise:
Yet oft, as happened to the stag,
The former does to ruin drag.

Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system, approximately 3000 miles (4850 km) in diameter, hardly larger than the moon. Despite being the smallest, it's extremely dense. In fact, it's the second densest planet after Earth. It's also the closest planet to the sun, making it dangerous to explore. Mercury is 48 million miles from the earth.

A Windsong by Ray Paquette (1984):

As you set sail for new horizons
May a brisk fair wind be with you
May your journey provide that mixture of
Joy, contentment, love and excitement
That gives rise to zestful anticipation
Of new adventures together.
May you cheerfully weather
the unavoidable storms together
And steer as clear of all obstacles
As the currents allow
May God Bless and keep you
Bon Voyage

My little game of Chess
That I played, with you
Making subtle moves
Hinting all too softly
Allowing impasses
Offering a pawn
Renouncing knights
Denouncing a bishop
Even giving up my Queen
That trying game of Chess
It appears, has come to a stale
Without one word spoken, without
An idea or intellect having being shared
My dear, I have not tried hard enough, and
I shall never be the wiser for not having made a move

Kasparov vs. Deep Blue; A Limerick
by Edward D. Collins

"Man versus Machine" it was billed
And each day the auditorium filled!
An interesting fight -
With Garry first to have White
Can anyone claim they weren't thrilled?
The first game proved Garry still King
"Deep Blue hasn't learned anything!"
Quickly out of its book
It later "won" Garry's Rook
Does this thing even belong in the ring?
But then Kasparov resigned in Game 2
And at the time nobody knew
Later shown he could draw
Did this stick in his craw?
Others may be wondering too!
"The printouts!" Kasparov cried
"Why was I so flatly denied?"
So they were then sealed
Only later revealed
One point each -- this match is now tied!
Games 3, 4, and 5 were all drawn
Deep Blue did indeed have some brawn!
It's now winner take all
So don't fumble the ball
(Or in our case don't fumble a pawn!)
Game 6 was the most startling yet
And I'm sure it cost many a bet
Deep Blue sacked a Knight
Quickly proved this was right
And so began all the talk on the "Net"
This chess match made worldwide news
And most thought that Deep Blue would lose
But with its three-and-a-half
If you do the math
You'll find Garry's the one with the "blues!"
No machine has done it 'till now
Bested our champion in match play -- kapow!
While few thought it would
Deep Blue proved that it could
And Garry is wondering "How?"
"I was not in the mood to fight"
Said the champ to the press that night
"But let this be clear"
"I guarantee -- do you hear?"
"I will tear it to pieces!" -- he might!
So, in New York on the eleventh of May
Of '97, the records will say
A machine, no less
Sat down to play chess
And proved that it really can play!
"Rematch" was then heard through the land
It is something we ALL should demand
For if Deep Blue will square-off
One more time with Kasparov
The games would be certainly grand!
We really have nothing to fear
Computers can help us, it's clear
And although Deep Blue won
And had its day in the sun
I think "chess" was the real winner here!
