Man versus Machine - Kasparov versus Deep BlueIn May 1997, World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov, regarded by many as the greatest player of all time, came to New York to face his most unusual and challenging opponent yet. Deep Blue, a supercomputer developed by a team of IBM Scientists in a project started ten years earlier, was capable of calculating 200 million chess positions per second and was incapable of tiring, losing heart or making an oversight. Six games would be played for over $1 million in prize money.
This book tells the full story of this historic encounter, from the personalities, hype and controversies to the debates over computer intelligence and the future of chess. Every game is analyzed in detail and the earlier 1989 and 1996 matches between the two contestants are reviewed.
Man versus Machine: kasparov vs. Deep Blue is the definitive on-the-scene report that every chess enthusiast must read.

Masters of the Chessboard

Fighting the French
A New ConceptNowadays the French Defence 1...e6 is one of the most popular openings in response to 1.e4. I'd like to suggest a new concept of combating it. White plays 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 and then deploys his pieces according to the scheme Ngf3, Bd3, c3, 0-0, against almost anything that Black may play. This will usually lead to exchanges in the centre and the appearance of an isolated queen's pawn for White.
