The first match was played in February 1996. Kasparov won the match 4–2, losing one game, drawing in two and winning three. A rematch, which has been called "the most spectacular chess event in history", was played in 1997 – this time Deep Blue won 3½–2½. So for those who still think that the Machine won over Kasparov, think again! We cannot conclude, that the one who wins the last game wins them all, instead we can say that it was a draw. Now I know how it sounds and I know that this is not something new, but some people still think that Kasparov lost. Just as a reminder, one needs to win 2 out of 3 matches to be considered a winner. This is not some great discovery, it's not rocket science everybody knows that, however, every now and then I hear people saying "Yeah, he lost against the computer", he actually didn't lose, it's a draw. One win for each side, and in my humble opinion even that is a great result. Computers are built for calculating, this is what they do best, computing, and Chess is exactly that, they're slowly winning the Chess battle against us. You decide what you want to remember but we have at least to give Kasparov the honor for trying. One day perhaps, if not today, we will remember the man who stood against the Machine, the man who dared to confront the giant box of microprocessors. Greetings to the kid from Baku, Garry Kasparov.
"Though I would have liked my chances in a rematch in 1998 if I were better prepared, it was clear then that computer superiority over humans in chess had always been just a matter of time." - Garry Kasparov
