    In Pamplona (Spain), the Computer Olympiad 2009

    played, with six programs participating:

    two each from China and Taiwan (ROC), one from

    Japan, one from the Netherlands.

    After a double round robbin the medals went to:

    Gold - Bit (China)

    Silver - MeinStein (NL)

    Bronze - Bit2(Connect6) (China).

    Some more details available at

    http://www.grappa.univ-lille3.fr/icga/tournament.php?id=201

    The dutch entry “MeinStein” was developped by

    Theo van der Storm. Theo, who had been also active

    here on LittleGolem, died in January 2009, but his

    friend Jan Krabbenbos operated MeinStein in Pamplona.
