I've owned H2, H3 and now H4, so I'm a fan, but these blitz-type TC are likely not terribly relevant to ICCF TC of, say, 8-24 hours/ move. Are any "ICCF type LTC" tests underway?

Impressive result by Houdini. Blowing away Stockfish 4 and Komodo 6.

Let's wait and see Stockfish DD results. Should be around 40-50 elo behind Houdini 4.
Theory and practice sometimes clash. And when that happens, theory loses. Every single time.
