Garry Kasparov is and has been the
world's number one chess player for an incredible 19 consecutive years.
On November 9, 1985 Garry became the youngest ever World Chess Champion
when he beat Anatoly Karpov. In January of 1990, Kasparov created two
milestones in chess history. First, he moved past Bobby Fischer's best
ever rating of 2785 and then broke the magical 2800 sound barrier. He
was the first player in Chess history to do so. At that time, it was the
chess equivalent of breaking the four-minute mile. In 1999, after winning
the three major events of that year, he created a unique new milestone
by topping the 2850 ELO ratings mark. From December 1981 to February 1991,
Kasparov made chess history by winning every single event for nearly ten
years. He remains the undisputed "King of Chess".
X3D Fritz: is the marriage of the
most dominant computer chess software with the most powerful 3D software.
X3D Fritz has ruled the virtual chess world since inception in 1991 accumulating
more victories than any other professional chess software program in history.
X3D Fritz can list amongst its victims chess goliaths like IBM Deep Blue,
GM Polgar, GM Kortchnoi, GM Adams and Deep Junior before leveling 4-4
with then current World Champion Vladimir Kramnik achieving a rating performance
of over 2800.
