Hall of fame
In english the name is written Fritz
Fritz is a chess engine and chess program developed by Frans Morsch and Mathias Feist.
Originally in the early 80s, Morsch and Ed Schröder, decided to team up and produced a chess program together. In the early nineties Morsch was asked by the German company "Chessbase", to write the software for the Fritz chess programs. In 1995, Fritz 3 won the World Championships in Hong Kong, surprisingly beating a prototype version of Deep Blue due to Fritz's better opening book.
The latest version of the consumer product is Fritz 9. In 2002, a version of Fritz specifically designed for multi-processing, Deep Fritz, drew the Brains in Bahrain match against Vladimir Kramnik 4 - 4. In November 2003, X3D Fritz, a version of the program with a 3D interface, drew a four-game match against Garry Kasparov.
Fritz should play another match against Vladimir Kramnik at the end of 2006.
On the 2006 june 8 SSDF rating list, Fritz 9.0 is placed fifth with a rating of 2812.
