Hello,

When searching for a solution for  a 4x4 tic tac toe for a certain depth, how can I determine the utility if I haven't reached the last depth?

Can I write my own evaluation function, and it doesn't have to be "f(n) = [number of 4-lengths open for me] - [number of 4-lengths open for you] " since I'm not at the last depth.

I'll be using alphabeta pruning.
