    The computers are said to be able to calculate 3 million positions per second. So how come some grandmasters are still able to draw/beat them? 

    Kasparov could draw bunch of games or even win some of them.

    In 2003 Kasparov had a match with Deep junior and almost won. I guess human brain is really amazing.

    Yes.  Also computers are very stupid.

    Computers are extremely strong in calculation, but GMs have good strategic understanding that allows them to find correct moves even against computers. The computers are still not as good as a GM like Kasparov in endgames and closed positions. And it was in 2003, the computers were not as strong as today.

    top chess professionals can't compete with engines anymore under classical time controls. may still be able to beat them in a blitz game here and there. no longer any question as to who is stronger engines or top 10-30 in the world---the engines win. people go on about engines not being good in closed positions and in certain endgames, probably still true for less advanced engines, but in the more advanced versions even these holes are being patched and horizon effects are happening less and less.

    I think it was set up by some agents of corporate interests and the media or something.  I forgot the specifics.

    Actually, I never knew the specifics.

    No, in Kasparov's words, he knew why moves were better. Deep Blue does not know why some moves are better than others; programmers must teach them (and possibly not perfectly)
