game over : kasparov and the machine

pawn to king four...

in 1997, garry kasparov; the greatest chess player who ever lived, took on ibm's 'deep blue'; a computer, and lost. this is the story of that match.

i love chess. i'm not very good at it, but i love it. just like maths.

i also like this story a lot, mainly because i think i like mr kasparov a lot. he may come across as being a bit odd, but i love the fact that he has probably dedicated nearly all of his life to thinking about and playing chess. to me, the fact that people like this exist makes me very happy.

any way... hurrah for kasparov! boo for ibm!

good stuff.

the dvd is £3.99 from play.com
