Mac Dutch Chess champion

The 5th International Dutch Computer Chess championships were held in Leiden, Netherlands from June 3rd to June 5th. The program dubbed "Shredder" running on a dual-2.7GHZ G5 piloted by Stefan Meyer-Kahlen managed to take first place. Competitors had to play nine rounds in three days with a time limit of 90 minutes per game for each side. "Shredder" was in second place after the first day and swept in to take first by day two with 5.5 points out of 6 games. Stefan wrote "The Macintosh version of Shredder performed very well and as far as I know this was the first time that a chess program running on an Apple Macintosh computer has won a major computer chess tournament. The Macintosh hardware has also proved that it is very competitive and fast." are also available.
