Home * Engines * Patsoc

a computer chess program by Hans Berliner written in BLISS 36 [1], which played the WCCC 1983 in New York, running on a DEC PDP-10 with 36 bit word length. Patsoc first implemented the evaluation feature of the crippled majority with doubled pawns involved [2]. Nevertheless, Patsoc is the acronym of "Plays a terrible sort of Chess" [3].
