Gothmog,
a Chess Engine Communication Protocol and UCI compliant closed source chess engine by Tord Romstad. Gothmog was a MTD(f) searcher [1] , and according to its self-critical author seemed to have degenerated into a highly complicated random move generator [2] , which further was big, horrendously complicated, buggy, and has almost completely unreadable source code. In 2004, Tord almost resigned to continue working on Gothmog in favour to his new engine Glaurung [3].
