The first automaton chess player

The Turk, also known as the Mechanical Turk or Automaton Chess Player (GermanSchachtürke, "chess Turk"' HungarianA Török), was a fake chess-playing machine constructed in the late 18th century. From 1770 until its destruction by fire in 1854, it was exhibited by various owners as an automaton, though it was exposed in the early 1820s as an elaborate hoax.[1] Constructed and unveiled in 1770 by Wolfgang von Kempelen (1734–1804) to impress the Empress Maria Theresa, the mechanism appeared to be able to play a strong game of chess against a human opponent, as well as perform the knight's tour, a puzzle that requires the player to move a knight to occupy every square of a chessboard exactly once.

Turk reconstruction

The Turk was in fact a mechanical illusion that allowed a human chess master hiding inside to operate the machine. With a skilled operator, the Turk won most of the games played during its demonstrations around Europe and the Americas for nearly 84 years, playing and defeating many challengers including statesmen such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Benjamin Franklin. Although many had suspected the hidden human operator, the hoax was initially revealed only in the 1820s by the Londoner Robert Willis.[2] The operator(s) within the mechanism during Kempelen's original tour remains a mystery. When the device was later purchased in 1804 and exhibited by Johann Nepomuk Mälzel, the chess masters who secretly operated it included Johann AllgaierBoncourtAaron AlexandreWilliam LewisJacques Mouret, and William Schlumberger.

 Carlsen the new World Chess Champion 2013 -

Chennai, India
The World Chess Championship 2013 was a match between the defending world champion Viswanathan Anand of India and challenger Magnus Carlsen of Norway, winner of the 2013 World Championship Candidates Tournament.
 Anand Carlsen 2013
 Carlsen opening with 1.c4 in critical round five.
The match gathered record-setting TV audiences in Anand's home country of India, and huge interest around the world. It took place from November 7-22 at the Hyatt Regency Chennai. Carlsen won the match 6.5 to 3.5, after ten of the twelve scheduled games.
The match started with on a timid tone, with both players employing extremely solid opening strategies, perhaps to conceal the bulk of their opening preparation. Carlsen opened games 1 and 3 with 1.Nf3, a move that he historically has seldom employed.
Carlsen was the first to draw blood in game 5 as he turned a tiny advantage from a Queen's Gambit into a powerful ending. The pressure continued in game 6 when Anand's Ruy Lopez went wrong and Carlsen again achieved a win. In game 9 Anand finally found what he was seeking: a complex position with good winning chances, but his attack went wrong after 28.Nf1? which lost immediately.
Three games down coming into round 10, the match was all but over for Anand, and a hard fought draw in game 10 finished the match at only 10 games, making Magnus Carlsen the 16th undisputed World Chess Champion.
