Stockfish 14102319 x64 vs. Komodo 8, Houdini 4 - 100 Rounds, 30 Seconds + 500 ms

Today, I conducted a very quick test for the latest Stockfish 14102319 which was released on October 23, 2014. The time control was 30 seconds base + 1/2 second increment. This was just to determine quickly whether Stockfish made a good improvement from the previous released version. The last patch showed only a very small margin of wins in the short and long time control tests, so there is not much to expect. When the matches were over and saw the results, I decided to just share it together with some observations.

Well, the matches were all won by Stockfish 14102319 with a score of 56-44 against Komodo 8 and 59.5-40.5 against Houdini 4. The pattern is pretty much the same in my regular tournament at 1 minute base + 1 second increment compared with the special longer tests at 5 minutes, 10 minutes or 60 minutes. It was always Stockfish, Komodo and Houdini in that order of the ranking.

The general idea that Houdini is very strong in fast blitz and Komodo at long time control is not true anymore. Stockfish rules in any time control as can be seen by the results in most rating list sites.

Here is the result of the quick blitz:
