One of the very few games in the contest which was entirely an endgame effort unsurprisingly had some differing opinions, receiving the rare spectacle of both first and last place rankings from the judges.
This back and forth game, like many others, received a fair variety of rankings as often happens in wild games with it being high in excitement value but more likely to have more blunders.
Yet another game which received a wide variety of rankings from all over the spectrum and wound up fittingly finishing near the middle.
The second of three draws makes it into the Top Ten with an interesting set of rankings, with four high rankings and three low ones, without any really in the middle – some judges being attracted by the seeming perfect nature of the last part of the game, and others turned off by the shortness and seeming lack of necessity of the complications.
The third of six Wildcards just misses out on the top ten, strangely managing to get a ranking from essentially every part of the spectrum, yet another demonstration of how subjective this contest really is.
