Thanks for the clarifications, Carlos.

Fwiw, for an 8x8 board, with values N=3.5 and R=5.5 (with Q=10) as per Euwe's values in the case of chess, I'd tentatively estimate the relative value of a sissa (at least in the later stages, with a near-empty board) to be approximately 10.36 (or 10.33, for the sake of using a nicer fraction). That's by my somewhat primative calculating methods. :)
