Simple razoring: depth 1 only, no distinction between PV / NonPV We simplify the razoring logic by applying it to all nodes at depth 1 only. An added advantage is that only one razor margin is needed now, and we treat PV and Non-PV nodes in the same manner. How to continue? - There may be some conditions in which depth 2 razoring is beneficial. - We can see whether the razor margin can be tuned, perhaps even with a different value for PV nodes. - Perhaps we can unify the treatment of PV and Non-PV nodes in other parts of the search as well. STC: LLR: 2.96 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] Total: 5474 W: 1281 L: 1127 D: 3066 LTC: LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] Total: 62670 W: 10749 L: 10697 D: 41224 In addition, we ran a fixed LTC test against a similar patch which also passed SPRT [-3, 1]: ELO: 0.23 +-2.1 (95%) LOS: 58.6% Total: 36412 W: 6168 L: 6144 D: 24100 We are opting for this patch as the more logical and simple of the two, and it appears to be no less strong. Thanks in particular to @DU-jdto for input into this patch. Bench: 4476945
