  • Garry Kasparov is able to examine up to three chess positions per second.

  • Deep Blue has a small amount of chess knowledge.
  • Garry Kasparov has a large amount of chess knowledge.

  • Deep Blue is incapable of feeling and intuition.
  • Garry Kasparov has a great sense of intuition.
  • In May 1997 there was another match. Deep Blue was now much faster and could calculate 200 million positions per second and won the match 3,5:2,5.

    Deep Blue was the first computer in history who was able to beat a world champion.

    In the second game Kasparov resigned in a drawn position because he overlooked a variation in which he could have a balanced equal position with drawing chances.

    After this unnecessary loss in the second game Kasparov's psychological condition went downhill and he didn't find back to his usual strength. He lost the sixth game rather quick, playing the black pieces
