Connect-3 Game Playing Bot

We use Minimax algorithm to predict the next optimal move after every move by the user. This work demonstrates how a complete search done by Minimax algorithm can always yield optimal results. To speed up the search, alpha-beta prunning is implemented to prune moves that do no better than the currently explored moves. We test two methods using Minimax algorithm for game playing – with and without Alpha-Beta Prunning. A 14x faster first move is obtained using alpha-beta prunning.

The code is publicly available on github.
