This game is most likely related to or named after SARGON, a microcomputer program. In 1978 SARGON won the first tournament for microcomputers, held in San Jose California. David Levy collected his 10 year bet by defeating CHESS 4.7 in Toronto Ontario. One of the games was a draw. This was the first time a computer drew an international master.
