That was Hans Secelle from Belgium. For years he tried to make his Basic program
Bionic (Believe It Or Not It's Checkmate) strong enough to compete in the Dutch
open. When he did not succeed he decided to make changes to Crafty naming it
Bionic Crafty and he competed with that. Some programmers were not so happy with
that, so he only competed once. Than he joined forces with Tom Vijlbrief
programmer from Ant. This team competed in every Dutch computertournament the
last couple of years.
