|Dec-29-11|| ||newzild: I don't see why this blitz game should be GOTD, especially since there are so many blunders towards the end.|
I suspect that once again chessgames.com has simply gone for a pun, rather than given any thought to the merits of the game. Annoying to spend five minutes clicking through a skittles game, expecting to find some brilliant finale that doesn't exist.
|Dec-29-11|| ||erniecohen: <newzild> Agreed, especially since white could have ended it with 22. xd8+ xd8 23. xd8+ a7 24. g8. It's not as if Socko doesn't have some decent wins they could have used instead.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||Uvulu: <erniecohen> In your line, how would you deal with 24... Qg4?|
|Dec-29-11|| ||Penguincw: Geez just one check in this game.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||kevin86: Did Black resign too soon? After all,he's only four pawns and the exchange down.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||erniecohen: <<Uvulu> In your line, how would you deal with 24... Qg4?>
25. f1 xh4 26. xg7 g4 27. d5 xd5 28. exd5 xe3 29. fxe3 xg5 30. xf7 1-0|

As usual, we will have our regular 11 categories, ranging from serious to the silly, possibly absurd.|
Best Game Collection
Best Written Post
Details will follow, this is giving everyone a heads-up.
|Dec-29-11|| ||Chessmensch: < newzild > seems to have it right. There is little of merit in this game.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||Domdaniel: Calling <GOTD> people. If you think some poster here is a good analyst, then nominate and/or vote for them in the Caissar awards. Or if you like the way they write, or their 'humor'.|

|Dec-29-11|| ||Nina Myers: <AlphaMale> You're so full of it!|
|Dec-29-11|| ||Domdaniel: <Nina Myers> Almost by definition, nesspah?|
|Dec-29-11|| ||Domdaniel: <Alpha> You're welcome to your opinions. There might be technical issues with the 3rd category listed, as User: diceman does not seem to have any game collections.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||AlphaMale: Well, that only goes to show how high his standards are. Who was it, when asked about his best game, rejoined that he hadn't yet played it. That's the spirit I like. However good diceman is, he can get better, he will get better!|
|Dec-30-11|| ||kevin86: In certain parts of the world,if diceman won that many awards,someone would "roll" him. lol|
