No.. Stockfish today is better than H4. Simple as that.phenri wrote:Should be given something. According to the original poster, the match took place on PlayChess or equivalent. So the machines are certainly not the same. So different geographical location and therefore differente connection. And many other unknown hardware/software optimizations.

H4 its 1st in rating lists because wins more points to other weak engines, thanks to contempt, and gets a better general result.
The current way to develop Stockfish is amazing and I wonder what would happen if the same system is applied to other engines like Komodo. If Don wanted to immortalize his engine, the correct way was to open source and give it to the community to make improvements.
Can any imagine a competence in future with a couple of engines developed as Stockfish now? Say a match between SF vs open-Komodo? ( or open Houdini? )
PS: any engine can be embraced by community, not only Komodo or Houdini. There are many open engines to start with.
