Ground truth labels for the HCS dataset were created manually, and are stored in two .txt files: "training_tags.txt" and "testing_tags.txt". Each tag corresponds to a single text box in the dataset.

Tags follow the following format:

[Game #]_[Page #]_[Move #]_[black/white] [label] with a space between the move description and the label. For validation tags, the [Page #] field is ommitted.
