Ad Fundum [1]

The Eighteenth World Microcomputer Chess Championship took place from August 19 to 23, 2001, at Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands in conjunction with the 6th Computer Olympiad. The WMCCC as well the Olympiad were held in Ad Fundum which is located on the base floor of the former Jesuit Convent (Tongersestraat 53), in 2001 home of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Maastricht University [2] . Deep Junior, running on a Intel Dual PIII, won the overall tournament with the title World Microcomputer Chess Champion, third placed Shredder was the best single processor engine awarded with the title Single-CPU World Microcomputer Chess Champion, while Gromit Chess became Amateur World Microcomputer Chess Champion. The 18th World Microcomputer Chess Championship was the last Microcomputer event. On the triennial meeting of the ICGA during the WCCC 2002, the members agreed to discontinue the WMCCC on behalf of a yearly World Computer Chess Championship cycle, since the micro distinction seemed no longer contemporary, considering multiprocessors.
