Nonetheless, this game was a first. I had achieved a personal milestone in December winning the World Championship and this was my first tournament after that. Of course, in a certain sense, so had Kasparov. "After death" as he put it in the closing ceremony. He usually turns up late for the game hoping to avoid photographers, but I noticed this doesn't work anymore. The photographers simply came to our table 5 minutes later! Anyway, my ruminations about the game ended and we started to bash out our opening moves. } 1. e4 {Wedberg} e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5.

Instead, Deep Blue ignored the threat and quite nonchalantly went hunting for lowly pawns at the other end of the board. In fact, at the point of maximum peril, Deep Blue expended two moves - many have died giving Kasparov even one - to snap one pawn. It was as if, at Gettysburg, General Meade had sent his soldiers out for a spot of apple-picking moments before Beckett's charge, because he had calculated that they could get back to their positions with a half-second to spare. In humans, that is called sangfroid. And if you don't have any sang, you can be very froid. But then again if Meade had known absolutely - by calculating the precise trajectories of all the bullets and all the bayonets and all the cannons in Pickett's division - the time of arrival of the enemy he could, indeed, without fear, have ordered his men to pick apples. Which is exactly what Deep Blue did. It had calculated every possible combination of Kasparov's available moves and determined with absolute certainty that it could return from its pawn-picking expedition and destroy Kasparov exactly one move before Kasparov could destroy it. Which it did. It takes more than nerves of steel to do that. It takes a silicon brain. No human can achieve absolute certainty because no human can be sure to have seen everything.
