We are down to the nitty gritty in the GOTY Contest. But which of the games will emerge victorious and be voted the best of 2014? Be sure to vote in the poll to see if you have decoded what the judges might have done!
There is always one unfortunate game which finishes right outside of the $ spots, and this year it unluckily fell to GM Lenderman two-fold as his two entries were eliminated in 6th + 7th.
GM So has an astounding four entries in the GOTY Contest, but inevitably they had to start falling, and the first one did just that today, but nevertheless him managing four games in the top seven is a feat which might not be matched anytime soon.
In yet another game with fairly different opinions, the second of five draws in the contest ended up taking its leave, but not before managing a very strong finish, not far from the Top Five.
In his first ever League game, GM Kovalyov got off to an impressive start with his fine effort ending up in the top ten in the Game of the Year Contest.
