How to beat a chess champion.
As a result of his victory, Levy's longstanding bet that no computer can beat him still stands (SN: 11/5/83, p. 303). "The day is not yet here when I must finally admit that the world's best computer program can beat me," writes Levy, "and I think that I can probably survive another two or three years before paying out the prize money."
Meanwhile, CRAY BLITZ, afte being installed on a new, faster Cray X-MP supercomputer, last fall successfully defended its North American computer chess title. Now, CRAY BLITZ's principal author, Robert Hyatt of the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, is "cleaning up" the program to prepare it for next summer's U.S. Open chess championship.
