Summary: Chess computer beats Kasparov

Wednesday 31 August 1994 23:02 BST

Garry Kasparov was beaten in the first round of the Intel World Chess Grand Prix by the Pentium Genius 2 computer. The machine won the first game, then drew the second to eliminate the Professional Chess Association world champion from the competition. Genius gains its power from a combination of a remarkable piece of software and a new super- fast processor. The chess champion could only hit his head in response to Genius defeating him.
