See Emily Play #6

The last game for Kramnik with White ended in another draw. With one more game to play, the score sits at Fritz 3.0 - Kramnik 2.0. So at best Kramnik can hope for a drawn match by winning the last game with the black pieces - no easy feat.

Fritz has proven to be a stiff competitor, but it hasn't launched any spectacular attacks. It defended precisely as you would expect a machine to do, and took advantage of Kramnik's mistake in game 2 to capture the only decisive match so far.

Despite the score, I would say I've been impressed with Kramnik's preparation and play, and disappointed with the computer.
