See, I follow his [Nakamura's] games on the Internet....He's capable of losing thirty games in a row. He plays against a strong computer. He's losing games, and he's learning. Now when he sits and plays against a human, you don't have a chance...Hikaru is playing these positions where you don't even know where you are...He's the best chess player in the world, in my opinion. He's unbelievable. In my opinion, it's awful. --Mladen Vucic, quoted in An Anthropologist at the Chessboard, 2011
We are just getting our first glimpses of how computers are changing the face of chess, not in how computers play the game themselves, but in how they are affecting the play of a whole generation of new, young masters.
