The individual awards come to a close with only the Game of the Year Contest left as we close the books on the 2015 USCL Season.
FM Elliott Liu (LV)
This was a very simple decision as just for his being awarded the top All Star on Board Three, while there might have been some other good candidates who had strong seasons, none were even close to his League, putting up a record which is unlikely to be matched in USCL History anytime soon.
A few of the other candidates who would have been very fine choices under different circumstances were his fellow All Stars NM Bryce Tiglon (SEA) and IM Andrey Gorovets (LUB) as well as near All Stars GM Elshan Moradiabadi (LUB), GM Andrey Baryshpolets (LUB), NM Brandon Jacobson (NJ), and NM Siddharth Arun (NE). All again had strong rookie seasons but not really in the same league as Liu.
As there did not seem to be any especially great candidates for this award (based on our general rules for it), we decided to not give this particular award out this season.
And that concludes the individual awards for the 2015 USCL Season. Stay tuned as we will announce the details for this year’s Game of the Year Contest shortly!
