Harm Geert Muller (HGM),
a Dutch physicist and since 1976 computer chess programmer. He wrote a blitz program for the PDP-11 and programs for the 6800 and 6502 8-bit µ-Processors, released under the name Usurpator, which competed in several Dutch Computer Chess Championships. In 1986 HGM came up with a matchbox computer with a 65SC816 CPU for the purpose of running Usurpator [1], competing three times until 1990 [2].

Comeback

After 15 years "out of business", HGM is back with his minimalist chess engine Micro-Max, the chess variants engine Fairy-Max, the closed source programs Joker and Spartacus [4], the Chinese Chess engine HaQiKi D, which won the silver medal at the 14th Computer Olympiad and bronze at the Games Tournament 2013, and the Shogi engine Shokidoki. HGM is involved in extending the Chess Engine Communication Protocol specification to Version 2 [5], also addressing various chess and chess like game variants, and further covering Checkers, Go, Amazons, and Othello [6].

HGM's Shogi engine Shokidoki won silver in 5*5 Shogi at the 15th Computer Olympiad [7], gold at the Games Tournament 2013 [8], gold in Shogi and Mini-Shogi at the 18th Computer Olympiad 2015, and won the 2015 UEC Cup [9] [10].
