Pioneer never played a game in the any match or tournament. It's urban legend.

I have my thoughts about Centaur, and quick summary is: it's not better than
even my chess program (Siberian Chess). Certainly it was not in the league of
the leading chess programs of the day (Fritz 3, Chess Genious, Rebel, etc. on
micro; DT, CB on the "big iron").

Never heard anything about Dragon. Even if it was not worse than programs
mentioned above, there is hard fact: there was huge country that claimed to be
superpower and had good universities and military research. Results of all that
were not visible in the computer chess fields, with sole exception of KAISSA
several decades ago.
