NOTE!:The chess program Deep Junior 7 (the same edition of the program that plays against Kasparov) is widely known in our country since it was presented for the first time in June 2001 when it played against the Champion of Greece and Grandmaster Christodoulos Banikas in Athens on a double processor machine. The final score was 2.5-1.5 in favor of the chess program.
In this event In.GR, the most popular portal in Greece, and Chess.GR were the sponsors.

One year afterwards, the same program played against the very strong Belgian Grandmaster Mikhail Gurevich in Korinthos whom it crushed completely (final score 3.5-0.5).
