Jan-08-19  Lovuschka: I thought the "Get Your News Here" clue in the Holiday Contest 2019 might refer to Hürriyet, as this game was from the Turkish championship. My line of thought was, that name sounds similar to Harriet, so a Harriet Hunt game might be looked for. Or by her brother Adam Hunt. But that doesn't account for the "/ 5" part of the hint. That might either refer to something out of five or divided by five.

  Stonehenge: Do they serve turkey on the fourth of July?
Jan-09-19  Lovuschka: Thought the hint means to get two five letter names out of those names. But it is not Gulko vs M Marin, 1994
Jan-15-19  Saniyat24: something French...Chistyakov?
Jan-16-19  posoo: da old posoo HEARBY lies clame to dis prize:

U MUST download da game number and divide by FIVE

if u do and you google dat, u wind up in da LA TIMES talking about RUNALD RAGAN.

da man also had a CHESOPUNING named after him so u u se da 1H4 and one of those gams is da winner.

SADLEY da old posoo dos not buy things on da internet, OR I WUD USE da opuning exploarer. But i bet u find dat one of da 1h4 gams is WINER.

Jan-23-19  Hoozits: It's in the URL, gid= ...
Jan-23-19  Lovuschka: 2122 would be TU if translated to the alphabet. So the Technical University of Delft comes to mind, which has a news site for its students, making us look at the games of Karel van Delft - and indeed there is... nothing! His three games don't have the winner...

and I also went through lots of math tricks, all the iterations of the mathematical sequence 2122 is famous in (2122, 121122, 11122122, 31221122, etc.) Nothing.

Here I am after two weeks, and I give up on this clue. I spent more time on it thatn I should. At least three to five hours, following small ideas again and again. But I can't make head or tails of it. Obviously I also tried iterations of the game number. What does the division by 5 mean? I don't know. I got some results for that also, but nothing worked, even exotic ideas like E Hermansson vs L Olsson, 2005 (6921220/5), etc.

So I draw my hat, I resign here. I hope someone will figure it out. Thanks for making me feel like an idiot when I'll eventually see the solution in... some more weeks?
