Reorder evaluation start In evaluate, we start by initializing the pos.psq_score and adding the material imbalance. After that, we check whether a specialized eval exists and if yes we return that value and discard whatever we have computed until now. It sounds more logical to first probe material entry and return if we have a specialized eval, and only if it is not the case initialize eval with some values. There is no measurable speed-difference on my computer. Non functional change.
