That is unusual.

You might analyze several failures against TSCP (with a very strong engine) and
see if you can find a consistent point of failure (king safety/passed
pawns/etc.)

Then you might learn what needs fixing.

Tactical strength does not imply playing strength.  In fact, I wrote a program
that projected best fit parabolic curves through parameter sets and that would
automatically tune for strongest tactical performance for Beowulf.  It made it
stronger tactically, but overall it played much worse with the new parameters.
