Did Computers Ruin Chess?

Computers have not only made the game of chess more interesting but also elevated its standards.
Because computers were getting better and better during this time frame, they ultimately caused chess to improve as well due to higher standards for what constitutes an “acceptable game.”
Since then, there’s been a significant increase in the number of players rated over 2000 which has tripled since 1993.
Chess has also become more popular amongst young people throughout school systems thanks to computer technology.
The advent of super-tournaments has helped push the top players into ever greater competition with each other. This means you’ll see more games like Anand vs Kasparov (2006) or Karpov vs Kasparov (1984).
