Remove explicit moveCount pruning The removed lines approximately duplicate equivalent logic in the movePicker. Adjust the futility_move_count to componsate for some difference (the movePicker prunes one iteration of the move loop later). Passed STC: LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] Total: 8114 W: 1810 L: 1663 D: 4641 Passed LTC: LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] Total: 89956 W: 14473 L: 14460 D: 61023 Closes Bench: 4256440 --------------------- How to continue from there? It would be interesting to see if we can extract some Elo gain from the new futility_move_count formula, for instance by somehow incorporating the final -1 in the 5 constant, or adding a linear term to the quadratics... ``` futility_move_count = (5 + depth * depth) * (1 + improving) / 2 - 1 ```
