Home * Engines * Rasputin

a mainframe chess program written by Jeff Rollason in Assembly at Westfield College [1]. Rasputin, beside Merlin Rollason's second chess program, was apparently a Swapping Off Material Analyzer (SOMA) approach with a static lookahead that allowed the program to play with tiny search trees. Rasputin entered international competition in 1979 in participating the Second European Computer Chess Championship in London.
Grigori Rasputin [2] [3]
