Deep Blue (Deep Blue vs Garry Kasperov, 1996 – Deep Blue in 37 moves)

Deep Blue was a computer developed by IBM to beat grandmaster Garry Kasparov, the top chess player in the world at the time according to Elo ratings. Playing White, Deep Blue won this first game in the match on February 10, 1996 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with 37 moves. Kasparov rebounded over the next five games, winning three and drawing two, to soundly beat the machine in the 1996 match. Every move is represented here. All of the moves of this game are overlapped onto one board. Pieces leave an impression wherever they sit. The longer they sit, the more distinct the impression.
