I would like to thank Michael Buro author of the legend program Logistello, Richard Delorme author of Edax, Chris Welty author of Ntest, Gunnar Andersson author of Zebra, Daniel Lidström author of Fox, Stephane Nicolet author of Cassio for all the days and nights of discussions about Othello programming the last years.

Special thanks also to my wife Michele who has the nerves to see me hours in front of a computer writing Othello programs.
