Kasparov's material advantage would be close to crushing. X3D Fritz needs
powerful queen on the board to keep counterchances.} Qd6) 26... Kg8 27. Rgf1
Threatening the brutally blunt capture Rxf7, taking advantage of the pin on

A surprise for Kasparov. Perhaps that pawn had sat there immune for so long
that Kasparov started to believe it couldn't be captured! Not only does

aw offer since it is now very hard for White to find any move to avoid the
repetition that does indeed end the game.} (32. Rd2 {This move was expected

Giving up another pawn in order to remove the worst of the black threats.}

obvious and forced move. Seirawan, Ashley, and Hoffman wondered if there was
malfunction! Nothing of the sort. X3D Fritz had plenty of extra time, so it
was in no hurry. It had started to see the repetition draw that now comes
when a decisive result comes into its analysis horizon the program gives
itself more time.} 34. Rcd2 {The only move.} (34. Rdd2 $4 Rxb2 $1 {Whoops,

himself a month ago against Huzman in a game that turned into the shortest

confused most of the commentators, but to anyone with extensive

calculation can only go so deep, even with four super-fast processors.
only possible source of counterplay in this position is to push its f-pawn
open up an attack against area around the white king, f2 in particular. If
Fritz's search, usually running 12-20 half-moves deep, ever reaches a
in which it sees success in such an attack it will put such a plan in
On the other hand, if it cannot reach a favorable position in its
it will never play the initial moves required. With the rook on b2
f2 already, the potential weakness of that critical square is somewhat
from the computer's search. X3D Fritz can't just play it anyway like a human
would, knowing that everything else is useless. A machine has to receive
positive evaluation from its search to play a move and always plays the move
that gives it the best evaluation. Since X3D Fritz sees no danger here for
itself it is content to play moves that do nothing, but don't cause any
negative effect either. It twiddles its virtual reality thumbs. Any human
would say, "I have to do SOMETHING."} Qe6 19. Qd1 {Getting the queen out

double on the a-file, penetrate to a7 or a8, force exchanges, and finally
push of the b-pawn will be unstoppable.} (45. Rb3 Ne8 (45... Qc8 46. Rba3 g6
