Very cool - I wa actually there for the February 17th game in Philadelphia. Gary was a very gracious winner back then after he won. To be honest he should have won the second match , he simply psyched himself out thinking DB was invincible. DB would not even come close to Komodo on high end hardware. Zappa Mexico would give DB a good match.

Very well stated, and I agree, however I would have replaced Komodo with Stockfish, also I think the Deep Blue team should have granted Kasparov a rematch, but with the condition that there were no fees for Kasparov to collect other than living expenses (I.E. hotel and food , and perhaps a flight back to where he wanted).

After he accused them of cheating, no rematch was ever going to happen. Had he acted sensibly there is little doubt a rematch would have been granted. But once he pulled out the "cheating card" IBM was out of there...
