But when Dragon gives handicaps to other engines with ratings in the GM range, we see the opposite: standard mode scores better than MCTS. It's important to set problems for human opponents in bad or losing positions, but it doesn't seem to work well against engines, it's better just to play proper chess against them. Standard mode doesn't care if it is forcing you to make the best moves, while MCTS tries to avoid doing so when it's a close choice.
This book is written by experienced chess masters and trainers to help players develop combination vision by systematic training in examining and solving typical combinations. The book also allows to determine your level of combination skills.
Dragon supports Ronald de Man's 'Syzygy' endgame tablebases. Endgame tablebases can be used to provide absolute knowledge about chess positions in which only a few pieces are left on the board (at the time of this writing, the Syzygy bases support up to 7-man positions, including the kings). Adding Syzygy to your computer and Dragon can increase the playing strength. Syzygy now works in both standard and MCTS mode. Note in MCTS mode, once the root position is found in a tablebase, MCTS will stop probing, but limit its search to only the game preserving moves (for example it will only look at winning moves for MCTS). This is done to ensure the proper game result, but to also allow MCTS to analyze which moves have best winning chances against inaccurate play.
