Statue of BB [1]

Christophe Jolly's first chess program running under MS-DOS on x86 PCs. BB participated at the WMCCC 1990 in Lyon, and the WMCCC 1993 in Munich, and is forerunner of Christophe's later program Techno Chess aka KnightX. Whether the program's name refers to its internal board representation, for instance as acronym for Bitboards, or the hexadecimal number 0xBB, decimal 187 and sum of three or nine consecutive prime numbers, and product of two primes as well, for a 17x11 vector attacks approach, to the branch and bound algorithm design paradigm, to Bébé or something else, is not known so far by the editor.
