Kasparov was feeling the pressure in what he described as a human defence against the onslaught of the machine. "I'm tired from these games, and if I was playing against a human, he would be exhausted too. But I'm playing against something that knows no such feelings and is always playing with the same strength." Deep Blue had thus far achieved a rating performance of 2775! 1/2-1/2
