Beginner PGMS Using the Mio Equation Strategy
yellow: hidden mine,
blue: marked mine,
red: probed mine,
black: marked emply cell.
This strategy includes an improvement to the Equation Strategy
suggested by the S-3 rule described in Castillo and Wrobel's paper titled "Learning
Minesweeper with Multirelational Learning". In a run of ten thousand
ramdomly selected beginner games, the Mio Equation Strategy wins close
to 60% of the games, and 71% of the games in which first probe of a
tile succeeds. This means the improvement is so tiny, it cannot be
measured by runs of ten thousand games.
