My first instinct after hand play against myself and noticing not only the winner but also the very limited use of the knight enhancement, is that in this case the enhancement worth less than .5 pawns. That is mostly because the knight enhacement doesn't offer much. I'm already thinking about a Grand chess (Cristian Freeling's version) knight enchaced with a threeleaper or tripper (i.e. an (3,0) jumper or an (3,3) jumper). It would matter as it makes the knight faster in a similar manner to the enhanced knight in Omega chess. This could be worth comparable or more to a Grand pawn. What do you guys think about it? This discussion can be applied to Fergus Duniho's Eurasian chess or Jean Louis Cazaux's (I took part of my Ph.D. in Toulouse) Shako. What do you guys think about it?
