Brains in Bahrain - Predicted Outcome - 2006/08/22 12:34 Vladimir Kramnik vs. Deep Fritz (new version) Namely man vs. Machine primarily match, 4, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17 & 19 October, 2002 - "Brains In Bahrain"
I have not found out many details about the Bahrain hardware, but they are going to be confidently using the fastest platform they can.
Despite of so epmirically-speaking the Bahrain machine should anxiously be expected to be no more than 2.4 / 1.2 x 3.7 = 7.4 times faster than the SSDF flagship test machine - well, pretty close to the experimental 7.5x, giving me a little cofnidecne I am on the right relatively track.

TONY BLAIR should be delighted that no fewer than 52 former diplomats have written to him to say that his Middle Eastern policy is “doomed to failure”.
Zara Steiner’s work shows how few of its supposedly first-class brains foresaw the cataclysm of 1914; the appeasement policy of the Thirties was directed from an FCO that agreed with Neville Chamberlain and Lord Halifax; its top echelons were keen on “dual-flag solutions” at the time of the Falklands.
The letter — signed by the former ambassadors to Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Yemen, Jordan, Syria, Bahrain and the UAE — is merely a howl of rage at their present exclusion.

I am used to wearing a lot of hats but now that our regular columnist is decamping from Edinburgh to Seattle in search of weak coffee and strong baseball I am now doubling, nay tripling as Match Director of the ‘ Brains in Bahrain’ match, Daily Telegraph chess reporter and now TWIC correspondent.
This match was originally supposed to have taken place a year ago but the September 11th attacks forced its cancellation and the subsequent decline of Braingames who (dis) organised the last Classical World Championship match forced another delay.
There was some traditional dancing from local children and then Kramnik was welcomed to Bahrain by the Crown Prince who presided over an elaborate ceremony to determine the colours.

The match in Bahrain, with $1m prize money at stake, pits Kramnik - nicknamed the Ice Man for his coolness under pressure - against Deep Fritz, an even stronger chess computer than IBM's Deep Blue.
Kramnik has not made that mistake and has prepared extensively for the rematch, hyped as Brains in Bahrain, the chess version of Muhammad Ali's epics, the Rumble in the Jungle and the Thrilla in Manila.
Their man was given a copy of the Deep Fritz programme three months before the Bahrain match so he will have some feel for the computer, no changes to the software programme will be allowed once the games start and Kramnik is allowed to rest every six hours.
