The other half of Week 2 has been announced, also containing what should be some great encounters. One of the most notable ones will definitely be the battle between GM Gareyev (LV) (left) and GM Akobian (right) (STL), two players who have already had a notable number of encounters in high profile US events, in what promises to be a good battle.

The lineups for the first half of what should be an exciting second week are now up, including a marquee matchup between GM Izoria (MAN) who boasts one of the most successful records in League history taking on the legendary GM Maxim Dlugy (CON) in the latter’s league debut.

Last season saw a great deal more draws taking top honors in the GOTW contest, and if this week is any indication, this season may do so as well as this super exciting draw between GM Gareyev of the expansion team Desert Rats, and GM Barcenilla of the other desert based team, the Scorpions, garnered top honors for the first week.
With a record number of games being played each week, the task of narrowing it down to what we feel is the best five of the lot might be anything but easy. However, we managed to do just that from the exciting first week!
Game of the Week is a consistent tradition in the USCL which has always been a sought after award from the players each week. Thus the process of picking it has always been scrutinized carefully as it changes a bit from year to year, and 2015 shall be no exception. Read on to see how it will work this season!
