    Not bad. In the best game stakes, I would have to deduct some points because both sides missed 10... Nxe4!, and also White should have played 15. b3 before a3, because Black could have answered 15... a4 and held down White's Q-side expansion. Black's K-side attack was well played.

    Hi Panel

    I don't know if contacting you this way is as good as PM. I guess not, but it has the bonus of letting the mortals watch your thought processes in action. I propose these categories. What do you think. Happy with any additions or red pen!

    BTW no need to start considering until
    a) all nominations are in (but by all means make a start)
    b) categories are decided (which is your call anyway, not mine).

    1. Best Game (under 2000 ACF)
    2. Best Game (under 1700 ACF)
    3. Best Game (under 1400 ACF)
    4. Best move/ tactic/ other
    5. Most Interesting Game
    6. Best Freestyle Game

    Hi Mortals

    We have two nominations so far (which is a crap effort BTW)

    1. http://www.chesschat.org/showpost.ph...8&postcount=14
    Players please Alex (incl ACF)

    2. http://www.chesschat.org/showpost.ph...8&postcount=75
    AlexRules01 1-0 Dilly Boy (ACFs please Dilly)

    I am now going make a cuppa and start viewing some of these gems from today and yesteryear!

    Nothing I have won on here in any format is worthy enough to have been retained in my memory.

    If freestyle games are to be considered (*I expect Gunner stops reading at the point of this abominable suggestion*) then there are a couple I have lost where the opponents played very well even allowing for the benefits conferred by the assistance of extremely strong computers. Just for the record since I doubt they will be considered eligible, even given the dearth of interest in the concept of the thread so far:

    Mangafranga vs K. Bonham (freestyle)

    Boris (1880) 1/2 - 1/2 Gunner (1550)
    Nominated for workmanlike defence with the black pieces against a much stronger opponent

    http://www.chesschat.org/showthread.php?t=6594&page=2
    This quickie from Phil Bourke & Zwischenzug as an object lesson leaving pieces hanging and tactics.
    Ratings from the era of the game being played please gentlemen.

    I nominate this for most interesting game
    http://www.chesschat.org/showpost.ph...&postcount=101
    Axiom (1600?) 0-1 Mangafranga (2100)

    or this
    http://www.chesschat.org/showpost.ph...2&postcount=75
    if for no other reason than it took until move 19 for a capture and I thought there was a lot of good positional shuffling. I'm really not qualified to assess whether the game as a whole is any good or not.
    Gunner (1500) 1-0 Elevator Escapee (1750?) at the time

    Now I'm off to check some of the heavier hitters' games and try and dig up a game where I got whacked.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I loathe 'em. I've added Freestyle section for the panel's consideration. I hope they kill it off!

    This was great to watch but not entirely technically correct (Ax was winning the move before the draw offer.)

    Axiom - Boris 1/2-1/2

    I think the freestyle games often turn out quite interesting.

    It's from Chesschat Tournament #3. Incredibly rich in tactics, that game. I see from the thread that Boris asked at the time: what does Fritz think of 23.Nxg7 ?

    As usual in such positions, Fritz initially thinks the move is rubbish and then curls up in the corner and requests an easier assignment, such as how to rid the world of all nuclear weapons. To get a useful evaluation out of it could take a number of days.

    I have not forgotten. Nor will I forget. I will not forget on the land; I will not forget in the trenches ... what was I doing?
