I've been hung up on determinism lately
This is from the wikipedia entry on determinism -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Determinism
Many mathematical models of physical systems are deterministic. This is true of most models involving differential equations (notably, those measuring rate of change over time). Mathematical models that are not deterministic because they involve randomness are called stochastic. Because of sensitive dependence on initial conditions, some deterministic models may appear to behave non-deterministically; in such cases, a deterministic interpretation of the model may not be useful due to numerical instability and a finite amount of precision in measurement. Such considerations can motivate the consideration of a stochastic model even though the underlying system is governed by deterministic equations.
The important piece:
Such considerations can motivate the consideration of a stochastic model

"In chess that number depends most of all on the 'material' score of the pieces."
Should instead be:
"In chess that number depends most of all on first the opposing king being checkmated or not and second the 'material' score of the agents own pieces. The checkmated king scoring 1000."
