Are we missing too much from the 50-move rule implementation to engines, whether HCE (Hand-crafted evaluation) or/and NN (Neural Network)?
We know that certain endgames are a win without the rule. Would the NN training time be significantly extended by removing the rule? If so, would there be enough benefit for it, i.e. engines evaluation more optimistic in some situations and converting drawn positions (by the 50 move rule) to a win?
Of course we are talking about special and rare cases over all.
