By the way, when Kasparov resigned on move 19, Mephisto Milano only had him down - 0.19
Could he have fought back?
Certainly not...engines give evaluations worse than -4.00 after c4...Kasparov was going down in flames and he knew it. Still can't believe he played that h6 move...
Thanks, Ziggy. It is enjoyable, but I am looking for someone (like you) who has advanced and can attest to its efficiacy.
Seamus, studying the way you describe sounds brilliant. I have Pandolfini's book on the Deep Blue v Kasparov match and have found it very instructive. My top machine is a Mephisto Master so I may see how fares with the games from the match.
how did you make out with this?
I'd love a strong dedicated chess computer to physically play a game out with analysis in display. The Resurrection models are out of reach $. I don't think a new model in the world of dedicated chess computers has been manufactured in years.
Thanks for the reminder Peter, I'll dust it off today. I lost the adapter for the MM and have only just ordered one from the UK. The unit is battery friendly but the power adapter should prove useful.
I discovered that Mephisto Master is not user friendly when it comes to going over a game as the process is very laborious and it is easy to mess it up. Pressing the "clear" button at the wrong time resets to a new game. MM would often make different moves compared to the game and as MM is rated at 2150 it's move are usually quite strong but certainly not in GM class. Interesting though is that in game 6, MM considered white as having good compensation for the knight at move 16. That is when I accidently reset the game and my patience finally ran out.
In future I'd definitely use a diferent machine if I wanted to go through a game.
