Kramnik - Fritz joke

A charade is going on now, in Bahrain. To prove, that Kramnik, a human, is able to defeat Fritz, the program.

Why a charade? While Beep Blue in its duel with Kasparov, has checked up to a billion moves per second, Fritz is running on a hardware which permits only 3.5 million checks per second. Despite the fact, this program could use much more computing power easily available today, it's prevented to.

A pathetic try to prove, that a human brains will be the ultimate chess player, for quite some time?

Well, silly but effective manipulation. Most people will buy it.
