Introduce DistanceFromPV We introduce a metric for each internal node in search, called DistanceFromPV. This distance indicated how far the current node is from the principal variation. We then use this distance to search the nodes which are close to the PV a little deeper (up to 4 plies deeper than the PV): this improves the quality of the search at these nodes and bring better updates for the PV during search.
