Stockfish lost to AlphaZero, the new kid on the block.


I thought that the commercial chess engine Komodo was stronger than
Stockfish.


The paper referred to Stockfish as the TCEC 2016 champion. I see that in
2017 at the TCEC, Houdini was the champion, and Komodo the runner-up. It
was in 2015 and 2014 that the situation I remembered - Komodo the champ,
and Stockfish the runner-up - existed.
