Hello guys!
i need a solution to the next problem :

given two states,how cand i know, which state is more favorable for WHITE (for example ), where a state is something like this, is the state of the pieces on the table.

I use a minimax algorithm to get the states.

You can try to think of features of the position that would be relevant (how far ahead the checkers are, number of blots (single checker piles), number of checkers on the bar...) and then combine them using a linear combination (multiply each feature by a coefficient and add together). You can set the coefficients by hand or you can adjust them in some automated fashion.

You should also search the web for `backgammon evaluation function' and see what others have done.
