Deep Blue - Garry Kasparov, 1997



En 1997, el Campeón del Mundo en ese entonces, GM Garry Kasparov se enfrentó por segunda vez al Súper Programa Deep Blue de IBM perdiendo el sexto juego con un resultado de 2.5-3.5 a favor de la “Maquina”. Se ha dicho que Garry se “dejo ganar” con el fin de promocionar la “fuerza” de los equipos de IBM. Luego de 19 años y con modernos programas de ajedrez, presentaré un análisis donde veremos el único error por parte del GM y ver si Kasparov tuvo la posibilidad de sacar una Tablas.

Shirov,Alexei (2686) - Akesson,Ralf (2452) [C02] Hasselbacken Open 2016


GM Alexei Shirov

Lamentablemente Alexei Shirov  ha desaparecido de los grandes torneos. Ocasionalmente se le ve en los Open pero el GM de Latvia es siempre recordado por su juego penetrante y estilo descomplicado.  En el Hasselbacken Open 2016 volvió a mostrar “Fuego En El Tablero” recordándonos de sus dos libros donde nos trae una colección de sus mejores juegos.
