The core mechanics of AlphaZero during selfplay and real tournament games are the same: something similar to Monte Carlo Tree Search is done but guided by the current neural network instead of random simulations. The network is only doing inference, it's not learning during a tree search. There's a great summary diagram here. The differences between selfplay ...

Question 1: I don't think they ran AlphaGo or AlphaGoZero in training mode during tournament matches because the computing power required for this is really large. I don't recall if this is described in the documentary but see this quote from the AlphaZero paper (page 4): using 5,000 first-generation TPUs (15) to generate self-play games and 64 second-...
