The database was supplied to Holte by Peter Clark of the Turing Institute in Glasgow (pete '@'

Data Set Information:

The dataset format is described below. Note: the format of this database was modified on 2/26/90 to conform with the format of all the other databases in the UCI repository of machine learning databases.

Attribute Information:

Classes (2): -- White-can-win ("won") and White-cannot-win ("nowin").

I believe that White is deemed to be unable to win if the Black pawn can safely advance.

Attributes: see Shapiro's book.
