The superior [chess] player is always on the alert for exceptions to general rules and analysis…. One of [Alexander] Alekhine’s particular strengths lay in his ability to create positions that on the surface seemed rather unclear or innocuous, but in fact were deadly Viennese Grandmaster Rudolf Spielmann complained that he could understand and discover Alekhine’s final combinations easily enough… but that in his own games he was unable to develop the kinds of positions which Alekhine concocted. Since computer chess is so much based on “normal relative values” in its evaluation functions, skeptics will wonder with good reason how computers will ever reach expert or master strength.
