Deep Blue (Computer) Vs Gary Kasparov is the generic name for the famous 6-game chess matches between the IBM Deep Blue supercomputer and the current 1996 chess world champion Gary Kasparov.

This first match was played in February 1996 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which was won by Gary Kasparov

This first game of the match became the first time that a computer beat the world champion, under normal tournament conditions, with a control time equal to that of official chess competitions.

I present below the first game of this interesting match for study and analysis

To play the queen prematurely, I consider it a bad play and of novices; since the opponent begins to attack it and the lady to retreat, achieving with this that the opponent develops more his pieces
