4.2 Move Generation Basics

The engine of GNU Go takes a position and a color to move and generates the (supposedly) optimal move. This is done by the function genmove() in `engine/genmove.c'.

The move generation is done in three passes:

  1. Information gathering.
  2. Different modules propose moves.
  3. The values of the moves are weighted together and the best move is selected.
