of playing for a small advantage, Vladimir Kramnik played a stunning piece
sacrifice on move 19 for a deadly attack on Fritz's king. The computer played
flawless defense and Kramnik's attack slowly dried up.
With just minutes on his clock Kramnik's position quickly fell apart against Fritz's counterattack and he resigned on move 34. A truly spectacular game that will require many days of man-machine analysis to understand completely.
Before the game the Fritz team insisted that it wouldn't be easy for Kramnik to draw against the super-program. "We are going to go down fighting," said Frederic Friedel, "he'll be nervous after game five and we'll keep the pressure on him." Anyone betting on the result of this game could have earned 7 to 1 by putting their money on Fritz!
Shades of Deep Blue-Kasparov are now more present than ever here in Bahrain. So far out analysis has been unable to find a forced win for Black from the final position of game six!
Did the world champion resign a drawn position, as did Kasparov in game 2 of his rematch with Deep Blue? What we can say for sure is that he resigned far too early as there was plenty of fight left in the white position.
