For Chess, had Kasparov been allowed to practice against Deep Blue, he certainly wouldn't have lost the critical sixth and final game in the way that he did.

Here, I dunno, but it would have certainly been much a fairer test with practice. AlphaGo had seen as many games by human world champions as were available.
