This is a programming question related to chess endgame tables.
As far as I know syzygy tables allow me to get WDL and DTZ information for a given position. Is it possible to somehow (without access to chess engine) extract DTM information of a position from these tables?
Based on what I understood from python chess documentation, that minimaxing the DTZ will give you a win, but it does not guarantee the quickest win:
Minmaxing the DTZ values guarantees winning a won position (and drawing a drawn position), because it makes progress keeping the win in hand. However the lines are not always the most straightforward ways to win.
