Eugenio Castillo [1]

Eugenio Castillo Jiménez,[2]
a Spanish computer chess programmer, author of the chess program Eugen, and co-author of the chess program Chinito and the Chinese Chess program XieXie. Eugen was partially inspired by open source programs like Turbo Chess, GNU Chess, and Crafty [3]. In 2004, it turned out Chinito contained parts of Crafty source and was therefore considered a clone [4] [5]. Eugenio's mens rea to use a readily board infrastructure from open source programs as base for own apparently original ideas and algorithms caused damage of his reputation in the computer chess scene. However, many who knew Eugenio from tournaments and personal communication found him an broad-minded computer chess programmer with lots of interesting ideas.
