Bob, a while ago we had a short conversation about singular extensions.

You said something like if a move is way better than the rest research
that move till Depth+1.

But what is the basic idea of singular extensions? Is it something like
q-search but then not for captures but forcing moves? How could it lead
to searching at greater depth *average* as was said of Deep Blue?

Could you tell something more about this, about the general idea, not
the implementation? (I'll be back for that later hopefully).
