Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-15-06  jamesmaskell: A draw seems about right. This was the last game of the match between Kramnik and Deep Fritz.
Oct-15-06  RookFile: Well, this entire game was basically well known theory in the QGD.

Vladimir Kramnik (2807) – Deep Fritz
Brains in Bahrain (8), 19.10.2002 [D68]
Kramnik allows early simplifications, so as to avoid any risks, and not suffer the same fate as Kasparov did in his last game against Deep Blue. 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.Nc3 c6 5.Bg5 Be7 6.e3 00 7.Bd3 Nbd7 8.00 dxc4 9.Bxc4 Nd5
An old maneuver to reduce the pressure.
10.Bxe7 Qxe7 11.Rc1 Nxc3 12.Rxc3 e5
This solves the problem of Black’s c8-bishop.

White has an isolated d-pawn, but this weakness is of no consequence, as all his pieces are active.
19...Qd8 20.Rxe8 Nxe8 21.Qd2 ½–½
Kramnik’s draw offer was accepted. Kramnik started very well in the match and was leading 3-1, but he suffered two defeats because of the machines tactical power. So man and machine have completely different strengths and weaknesses in chess, which makes these matches all the more fascinating. I am already curious as to whether Kasparov will manage to beat Deep Junior in December.
