Home * Engines * InterChess

a chess program by Michael Borgstädt and forerunner of Goliath. InterChess played the WMCCC 1996 in Jakarta, operated by Wolfgang Traudes. While the ICGA tournament site mentions Wolfgang Traudes as engine programmer [1], the ICCA Journal tournament report by Ratih Dewanti lists Borgstädt along with Grabusic as InterChess authors [2]. Other sources name Michael Borgstädt alone [3]. Michael Borgstädt, who cooperated with Heureka author Gerold Fischer and his partners at that time, contradicted rumours that InterChess and Heureka were double entries in Jakarta, and according to Bruce Moreland, said that they did have both of those entries, but different code bases [4].



The Brazilian program dubbed InterChess which caused some stir in 2002-2004 playing on FICS was not an original engine. Initially a Crafty clone [5], its operator later used various commercial programs [6] [7].

Chess Publisher

Interchess B.V. is the Dutch publisher of the New In Chess magazine and yearbooks [8], located in Alkmaar.

E-mail client

Not related, Interchess is further a name of an e-mail chess client, reported to be unavailable on a regular basis [9].
