- Algorithms for Connect 4? 4 answers
Just curious about ai strategies that people use for connect 4 besides minimax with alphabeta pruning because I see a lot of people using minimax + evaluation in the internet. Are there other strategies that can be used for connect 4 and can you give me an explanation of how that strategy is better/worse than minimax. Finally why is minimax so popular to solve connect 4?
