Go up one level in this thread

Hi Matt!

Thanx for the reply, when you say it sounds so natural. Of course more knowledge
will result in more nodes search since ther will be many new interesting
variations for the engine to look at.

I though of the eval as the guide to a single target, so making it better would
make the nodes searched drop. But of course the eval is a guide to MULTIPLE
target positions so more eval makes the engine realize there are new positions
to search because they have advantages that wasn't noticed before.

I really hope though that adding even more knowledge will not make the node
count go up much more, because then it will be very expensive to add more.

/Regards Albert
