> There is a definition of “brute force” on Wikipedia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brute-force_search explains it as
"systematically enumerating all possible candidates for the solution".

There is nothing systematic about the pseudo random variation
selection in MCTS; it may not even have sufficient entropy to
guarantee full enumeration...
