For the second video in my new series on the history of computers in chess, I covered one of the most famous examples of human dominance over the early versions of Chess AI. 

Bobby Fischer's legendary victory over the machine known as "Greenblatt"—named after computer programmer Richard Greenblatt—will live on forever as an infamous example of a chess engine's early ignorance to the initiative, the dangers of choosing material over king safety, and every human being's desire to exploit these materialistic thoughts!

Fischer dominated the machine in this exhibition match, and I hope you enjoy the video and written analysis of one of the most lopsided King's Gambit's ever!

Peace to the people.
