I want to do alpha-beta pruning on this tree:
Consider nodes J and K. K is the max. Therefore, node D has an alpha value of 20, node B has a beta value of 20.
Move to Node E. Pass the beta value of 20 to node E. Node L has an alpha value of 30, therefore, at this point 30 (alpha) > 20 (beta) and we can prune the E to M branch.
Now is my question. My original beta value at node B was 20, and the alpha value passed up to node A was 20. Then, in step 2, I changed the alpha value to be 30. Do i then change the beta value at node B to be 30, and the alpha value at node A to be 30? (and therefore pass 30 as the alpha value to node C)? Or do I keep the original value of 20 at node B, A and C?
