Murks,
a chess program designed and developed since 1979 by Alexander Reinefeld at the University of Hamburg, supported by his advisor Frieder Schwenkel. Murks was written for an Interdata M85, partly implemented in microcode, and testbed for Reinefeld's NegaScout algorithm. As mentioned by Reinefeld, Mikhail Botvinnik once played the program while visiting Hamburg [1]. Murks was the predecessor of the 68000 based MicroMurks, a joint work with Manfred Allers, Dirk Hauschildt and Dieter Steinwender.
