I'm testing various learning rates and neural network configurations. I'm testing over 10000 games, with the first 2000 having random starting moves and general randomness throughout of about 20%, i.e. 20% of moves are random.
In all configurations, I initiate the weights to random values.
What I've found is that in all configurations, Player 1 will win the majority of games, or Player 2 will. There's no 50/50 split.
Is this expected or normal? I am training on the Connect Four game.
