Maximize usage of transposition table in probcut Probcut is a heuristic that wasn't changed a lot in past years, all attempts to change it using information / writing info to transposition table failed. This patch has a number of differences that can be summarized as follows: * For TT write/read we use depth - 3. Because probcut search is depth - 4 but we actually do the move prior to it so effectively we do depth - 3 search; * In any case of depth of eval from transposition table being >= depth - 3 we either produce cutoff or refuse to even do probcut search, this is allowing us to write info of probcut to transposition table because we know that we wouldn't be overwriting some deeper data with our depth - 3 search - this is an important aspect of this patch; * For some not really known reason this patch completely ignores tte->bound() - which was the case for previous patch that made probcut interact with TT, maybe 2) is the reason, although it's unproven. A first version of this patch passed STC and LTC passed STC LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) {-0.50,1.50} Total: 95776 W: 18300 L: 17973 D: 59503 Ptnml(0-2): 1646, 10944, 22377, 11279, 1642 passed LTC LLR: 2.94 (-2.94,2.94) {0.25,1.75} Total: 57128 W: 7266 L: 6938 D: 42924 Ptnml(0-2): 372, 5163, 17217, 5389, 423 However, an additional bugfix was needed to avoid checking a condition on ttMove if was not available. This passed non-regression bounds on top of the first version: at STC LLR: 2.94 (-2.94,2.94) {-1.50,0.50} Total: 14096 W: 2800 L: 2628 D: 8668 Ptnml(0-2): 225, 1620, 3238, 1688, 277 at LTC LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) {-1.50,0.50} Total: 25352 W: 3228 L: 3139 D: 18985 Ptnml(0-2): 175, 2350, 7549, 2415, 187 closes Bench 4540940
