The winner of the $2500 first prize was Won Roshee's Friday, which lost one game on time and won the rest. The name Wang Loh-Tsi is also given, perhaps as a co-author. There is some uncertainty about the name of the winning program, another source gives it as Dragon.

In third place, with a $500 prize, was Allen Scarff's Microgo.
