I think you are right, search times are no good, for many reasons.

However, why don't you use nodes to solution, rather than nodes to depth?

The priority is to solve the position as fast as possible, nodes to solution is
a direct measure of that.

If you measure nodes to ply 10, what does that say?
It doesn't say a lot, I can get to ply 10 in 124 nodes, but the program won't be
any good. So you need confirmation that you didn't wreck it by running the test

Instead of having the test suite be an indirect verification test, why not use
it directly?


Nice article and keep 'em comming, I'll try it out sometime :)
