Schach MV 5,6,
an early chess program by Helmut Richter, which apparently was a SOMA approach without looking ahead more than one ply. In 1971, Richter started the development on a Telefunken TR-4 and TR 440 mainframe, continuing with a PDP-10. Schach MV 5,6, containing about 5000 Fortran statements, was subject of his diploma thesis [1].

Despite its lack of search and opening book, it was nevertheless relatively strong for that time, as demonstrated in the First GI Computer Chess Tournament 1975 in Dortmund, where Schach MV 5,6 scored 2/3, only losing from winner Tell [2].
