In Brainfish, the book moves are only used in engine games, not in analysis mode. All moves in the published book Cerebellum_light.bin generated by Cerebellum were calculated by using Stockfish as analysis engine, without using statistics.

Stockfish - UCI chess engine, i nteresting compiled by  Vizvezdenec Do lmr for more captures  Based on machinery introduced by vondele. Logic behind patch if relatively simple -  if we reduce less with high hit rate of transposition table somewhat logical is to  reduce more with low hit rate.
