Alternatively, the probability could be adjusted for the number of legal
moves.  (E.g. taking the easy example of (1,1) on an empty board,and eps
of 0.2, you'd adjust (1,1), (2,1) and (1,2) to each be 1/3 probability).

This does away with the involuntary pass concept. (But if you keep it, I
agree with John Tromp that it is just a wasted move, not able to cause
early game termination.)
