Robert Hyatt said that when he tested the performance differences between SEE
and MVV/LVA he saw a 10% advantage for SEE. Is this 10% really worth it when we
consider the fact that SEE might miss some tactical shots, like pins and other
check involving sequenses? This might be also true if we use standing pat
cutoffs in qsearch, but generally. Has anyone pitted a version of his/her
program using SEE against MVV/LVA in a long match (more than 100 games at
least)? What were the results?
