Chess Player 2150,
a commercial chess program developed by Chris Whittington in 1989, marketed by his company Oxford Softworks. The program ran on various most 68000 based platforms, like Atari ST and Commodore Amiga, and the 2175 version was also ported to run on Apple Macintosh and 8086 PCs. According to Thorsten Czub, Chess Player 2150 used a selective Shannon Type B Strategy, with its immanent affinity to blunder once in a game [1]. Chess Player 2150, played the 1st Computer Olympiad 1989.
