Bernhard Walter,
a German chess endgame researcher and programmer, who according to Karsten Bauermeister implemented compact endgame tablebases and endgame analysis tools for the Atari ST [1]. Along with Ingo Althöfer as published in ICCA Journal, Vol. 17, No. 2 in 1994, Walter defined weak zugzwang, which does not require a drastic change on the won-draw-lost value of a position, but in won endgames, a longer distance to mate for the side to move, and represented statistics concerning weak zugzwang in KQK, KRK, KBBK, and KBNK [2].
