Okay, I next tested with this which was just made up:

1nn5/nk6/8/3K4/8/8/8/5NBR w - -

A quick search gave this in Stockfish

1. Rh7+ Ka8 2. Bxa7 Nxa7
+ (153.20) Depth=62/43 TB=7308849 0:00:22 174 MN

My question is I have seen 153.20 frequently with Stockfish analysis. What does that number mean?

Also, since TB=7308849, is that the number of times a position was found in the table-base in the search so far?
