Hi Shaun, give my regards to David Blackman, my good mate from the 'Dale. Great to see Desperado (v.xx?) doing well.

Your name came up in conversation today. Don't worry it was all good.
Indeed David attributes the suggestion of valuing pieces as 1,4,4,6,12 (instead of 1,3,3,5,9) to you. One of my computer programs (Fencer) uses it, without any noticible problems, and it appears Hydra has also headed in that direction, valuing minor pieces closer to 4 pawns than 3.

Probably, my first reaction was I suggested that minor pieces should be evaluated much higher, and much more skilfully, in terms of against a pawn, than the 3/1 assessment of the beginners' books of the time.

But the initiative means everything, so now I'm not sure.

Hi Shuan... which bot was yours? And have you done any work on it, since last year?? ;)
