Mac Wins Computer Chess Tournament
8:07 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

For the first time ever, a Macintosh computer (Dual 2.7ghz Power Mac G5) was the winning canidate in the fifth International Dutch Computer Chess Championships. The Macintosh computer used a Mac OS X version of Shredder Chess, a computer chess-playing software developed by Stefan Meyer-Kahlen. There will be a Macintosh version of Shredder Chess available to the public this summer.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

It's not the first win for Shredder. The software has now won nine titles as World Computer Chess Champion - but it's the first win for the Mac version of the application. Computer played against computer in the Dutch competition.
The fifth International Dutch Computer Championships was held June 3-5th in Lieden, Netherlands.
