Double probability of using classical eval

This patch doubles the moderate imbalance threshold and probability of using classical eval.
So now if imbalance is greater than PawnValueMg / 4 then there is a 1/8 chance of using classical eval.

Improved search

Removed USE NNUE combo: only pure NNUE or classical for ShashChess
A lot more hard positions solved and at least the same playing strength as Stockfish hybrid approach.
This will also speed up the engine.
