I'm making a connect 4 game and I want to make it stronger by using an opening book. I've looked all over, and the only one I can find is by John Tromp.
I thought the book would be a list of moves that I could read into a tree. However, it consists of positions at 8-ply and whether they eventually lead to a win, loss, or draw for the first player. My question is how do I incorporate this into my program?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
