Humans will make the move that would be best if the race were closer, because 
we like to play "correctly". To simulate this, you could maybe feed into the 
evaluator the same board position for both opponents. 

But is it worth the effort to code, and the evaluation time? The only reason 
for it would be for learning good technique.
