Kasparov Wins Game 3 Against X3D Fritz
by timothy (30% noise)
Vulcao writes “Garry Kasparov just brilliantly won game 3 in the Kasparov vs. X3D Fritz chess match, which pits man against machine. Kasparov created a positional advantage on the queen side with a very strong pawn structure to which Fritz didn’t have an answer. The result is now 1.5 – 1.5, and the last game will be this Tuesday, Nov. 18.”
