Jim Kramer, the 2006 U.S. Scrabble Open champion, sits inside a plywood booth Friday at Westlake Center as he faces off against "Genius," a computer that could play the game. Kramer wore sound-muffling headphones so he could concentrate. The stunt was advertised as "Man vs. Machine" by RealNetworks, a Seattle firm that created the new computer game.
