# Has Connect Four been solved on arbitrary board sizes?

Victor Allis in his program VICTOR used his algorithm for six by seven connect four, his algorithm has proven to give a sure win.

Is it possible to have similar algorithm for x by y board?

There's no formula to determine which player wins (or whether it's a forced draw) on an $$x$$ by $$y$$ board, other than just letting a dedicated (complicated) solver program run a few hours/weeks/years.
