Target Rating

Black to move. Targets ranked by a simple heuristic.



1. Pawn f2 (5 points)
Not protected by pawn, only protected by King, attacked by Knight, x-rayed by Bishop, x-rayed by Rook.

2. Queen g6 (4 points)
Being a Queen, not protected at all, not protected by a pawn, can be attacked by a Knight.

3. Knight d3 (3 points)
Not protected at all, not protected by a pawn, attacked by Queen.

4. Bishop c1, pawns b2, c7, f5, g2 (2 points)
Not protected by a pawn, attacked by a piece.

In this special case, the Target Rating heuristic leads to the best move Nxf2, capture of the 5 point target. Not bad so far. But I have to test it with a lot more positions.
