Kamsky's notebook failure

Post by nuff » Fri May 18, 2007 10:47 pm

The Chessbase article said that Kamsky's notebook failed so he now has to make do without his ChessBase to prepare for his games. How bad is it for a GM to not do with his tools? Might it not be better for him to use his brain or are his skills zerorised by too much computer chess? After all Kramnik's Queen's Sac was blamed on his computer.

If he hasn't backed his Chessbase (or CA or whatever) files onto either an external hard drive or a USB stick he's rather silly

He could have just got a new notebook and been up and running next day

He is supposed to get another notebook tomorrow, and I will help him install the software on it. (I live in Sofia).
