King's Gambit: Fritz 5 vs. Rybka 2.2

Many people think computer engine games aren't worth watching.  Well, when I was about 13 years old, I took pride in learning computer programming on my own.  I made some mediocre, crappy things, but that is irrelevant.  Although I have stopped programming things (I never finished anything, anyway), because of my past experience with computer programming, I have an interest in watching engines play against each other, trying to crack "how they think."  Well, one thing can be learned--COMPUTERS AREN'T PERFECT!!!  Why do grandmasters, on occasion, beat computers?  Although they are getting stronger, they still have some critical cracks in their armor.  And most of these cracks involve strategy!  Well, anyway, below are four King's Gambit games played between two engines--Fritz 5.32 and Rybka 2.2.

    Well, Keon21, computer engines are tactically omniscient, in a sense.  They excel in tactics due to their ability to think several moves ahead on a consistent basis.  My favorite is game 3, where Rybka manages to win a bishops of opposite color ending with equal material, but a highly advantageous position.
