Re: Win-Draw rates when playing with various modified Pawns: The Lieutenant Pawns, Moscovia Chess

Hi HG Yes i meant that the additional rules for the Pawn gave a surprisingly still high percentage of draws. i think that this is due to the fact that i use for my tests one single engine.

Sometimes adding additional rules doesn't lead to the results expected. In fact, when testing Moscovia Chess using the Lieutenant Pa...
