My guess is you could find online coverage in addition to Barry's. Just a guess though.

Cheep related plug.

My most recent book discusses briefly Deep Blue beating Kasparov, computer versus human, in chess, concerning the theory of how to identify intelligence in computers. There are various theories, methods, tests (the Turing test being the most famous) and games (such as chess) to try to identify intelligence in computers. And some famous philosophers say that, even if it exists, intelligence in a computer cannot be verified.

Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence

Thank you all.


All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Well, after eight rounds we have eight draws, and I'm really not sure how this match will end. If all twelve games are drawn, quicker tiebreaker games will be played until someone wins. And Carlsen is a much better speed player and would have the advantage.

Caruana had a nice attack in today's game, as well as winning chances, but the pattern of the match has been he hasn't been able to bring home the point.

The 9th game just ended with yet another draw. The match is tied 4 1/2- 4 1/2, with all nine games drawn. Caruana plays white in two of the last three games, which are his best chances to win.

If the match ends tied, with either all twelve games drawn or with each player winning once, they will play a tiebreaker consisting of four games in one day, with each side getting 25 minutes per game. That's how the 2016 World Championship ended, with Carlsen steamrolling to the championship. Caruana should consider winning one of the last three games if he hopes to become World Champion.

After some spirited play, the 10th game ended in a draw. The match is now tied 5-5, with two games to play.

I'm by no means an expert on chess but this is starting to feel a little repetitive to me. Each player has the opportunity to be aggressive every other game.

This just feels like the same game, over and over no matter who is black and who is white. Carlsen does his best to be unpredictable and throw Caruana of his prepared script and then both players go into a shell and hope to draw. I agree it is advantage Carlsen if the game goes to a blitz tiebreaker. Just hoping for more wins and less draws, maybe I watch too many movies.

If this ends in a 6-6 tie, I think they should just kick field goals. Right, Jake.
