Home * Engines * SpiderChess

a chess engine by Martin Giepmans written in Delphi, initially with an own GUI [2] and later Chess Engine Communication Protocol compatible to run under WinBoard. SpiderChess played the WMCCC 2001 (as SpiderGirl) and the WCCC 2002, and various Dutch Open Computer Chess Championships, International CSVN Tournaments, and the CCT6. When the code has become rather messy, Martin started his second approach from scratch, dubbed Anatoli.
