Simplify RookOnPawn Remove the RookOnPawn logic (for rook on rank 5 and above aligning with pawns on same row or file) which was overlapping with a few other parameters. Inspired by @31m059 interesting result hinting that a direct attack on pawns instead of PseudoAttacks might work. After a few attempts by me and @31m059, and some long STC greens but red LTC, as a proof of concept I first tried a local SPSA at VSTC trying to tune related rook psqt rows, and mainly some rook related stuff in evaluate.cpp. Result was STC green, but still red LTC, Finally a 100M fishtest SPSA at LTC proved successful both at STC and LTC. All this was possible with the awesome fishtest contributors. At some point, I had 850 workers on the last test ! Run as a simplification STC LLR: 2.96 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] Total: 7399 W: 1693 L: 1543 D: 4163 LTC LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] Total: 41617 W: 6981 L: 6894 D: 27742 Closes bench: 4037914
