Not in a thousand years.

What you're remembering is all boasting Robert did when he noticed
Crafty knew some things about outside passers or majorities that
the then current version of Fritz didn't.

I don't think Fritz has ever been a very 'smart engine' (though
it's gotten better), compare to others like Rebel, Hiarcs, etc.

To extrapolate this to say Crafty has a better pawn evaluation
than *any* commercial is ludicrous.
