Chess game monitored by microprocessor

Intelligent chess clock:
Chess remains a very popular game, perhaps more so in eastern Europe than in the western world, although this seems to be changing, probably because of the many chess programs for computers that have been introduced over the past few years. One of these, Deep Blue, earlier this year inflicted a surprise defeat on world champion Gary Kasparov. It seems, however, that Kasparov underestimated the computer in that first game, because over the series he easily defeated the computer. This article is not about such a computer, but about an intelligent chess clock, mechanical versions of which have been in use for weil over a hund red years. The clock mayaiso be used to count the maximum number of moves each player may make during a game.
