Do you do any hard pruning? My engines (Steenvreter,Magog) always had a
move predictor (a.k.a. policy net), but I never saw the need to do hard
pruning. Steenvreter uses the predictions to set priors, and it is very
selective, but with infinite simulations eventually all potentially
relevant moves will get sampled.
