Philippe Fabiani,
a French chess player and avocational computer chess programmer. After learning chess at age seven, his computer chess interest arouse when he owned his own first dedicated chess computer, a Chessmaster Radiophon, and later more advanced chess computers as well as playing chess programs on a 486 PC. Philippe started computer chess programming when he discovered Tom Kerrigan's TSCP in the internet. He ported TSCP to C# [1] and Pascal using Delphi 7, which gradually evolved into his own engine, Delphil [2].


Philippe Fabiani summarized his ups and downs in chess programming with a quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky [3]:
"But man is a fickle and disreputable creature and perhaps, like a chess-player, is interested in the process of attaining his goal rather than the goal itself”.
