Appendix CHESS 4.5: Competition in 1976
The Northwestern chess program entered two tournaments in 1976. The first was the Fourth Annual Paul Masson American Chess Championships held in California on July 24 and 25. The second was the Seventh Annual ACM Computer Chess Championship held at Houston on October 19–21. The same version of the program which had competed in the 1975 National Computer Chess Championship at Minneapolis (see Chapter 1) was entered in both tournaments. In 1976, however, the program was run on a more powerful computer, a large scale Control Data Cyber 170 system.
