  • A set of experiments for learning the values of chess pieces is described for the popular chess variants Crazyhouse Chess, Suicide Chess, and Atomic Chess. [...] Key Result The results also underline the practical importance of piece-square tables for tactical variants of the game.Expand Abstract
