For more than fifteen years, people have been talking and writing about the possibility of chess playing programs. Previous "successful" programs have played a scaled-down game, parts of the game, or a weak overall game. This paper describes the first chess program to play a creditable amateur tournament game; it won the class D trophy in a Massachusetts State Chess Association Amateur Tournament. The paper is a well-written case study in artificial intelligence.
