   Jan-25-15 S Unnarsson vs R Berg, 2009
 
tpstar: Lots of good choices for Black after 6. h3 = Opening Explorer Funny cluster of pieces in the lower right corner. 24. gxh3 Rxg1+ forces 25. Qxg1 Rxg1+ 26. Rxg1 Qxh3.
 
   Jan-25-15 Claude Frizzel Bloodgood
 
tpstar: Also Gioachino Greco Bloodgood wins the Creepiest Picture hands down.

tpstar: <Uros> Great to see you around! I hope you have time to play chess once in a while. Best wishes.
 
   Jan-25-15 E Formanek vs G Stark, 2001
 
tpstar: Black went Stark raving mad with 18 ... f5?? due to 19. Bxe4 fxe4 20. Qd5+ winning a piece. This motif shows up frequently in the Sveshnikov, thus Black typically plays ... Ne7 early.
 
   Jan-25-15 J McDonnell vs G Taylor, 2009
 
tpstar: 2. Ne2 must have been a private joke. Black certainly castled into it!

tpstar: <dannygjk> [DIAGRAM]
 
   Jan-25-15 R Soltanici vs M Barasiant, 2001
 
tpstar: 10. Bxf6 gxf6!? scores well for White = Opening Explorer 16. h4!? is interesting - 16 ... Bxh4 17. Qh5 is out due to 17 ... Bxc2. Maybe 17. Nce3 Be6 18. Ra6. 20. Bxb5! Qxb5? 21. Nc7+. Cute Queen trap at the end.
 
   Jan-25-15 Kasparov vs Van Wely, 1999
 
tpstar: White to Play and Win after 43 ... Kf8. <Eyal> <plang> Great comments!

  tpstar: <Fairy Promotion> Thanks for voting!

Good to see Van Wely getting some love, even at Nakamura's expense. :P

Carlsen deserves high praise for giving simuls, knowing that every player in the world is out for him.

Best wishes. =)

  tpstar: 1) Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 There was no bigger surprise in 2014 than Caruana romping through the strongest tournament in chess history.

2) Topalov vs F Vallejo Pons, 2014 A resurgent and resilient Topalov creates a murky material imbalance for the win.

3) Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 Anand scored one win during this WC match to make it more competitive, despite the eerie air of inevitability.

4) Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 All Hail King Carlsen.

5) B Bok vs W Spoelman, 2014 The brilliant 24. Qe6!! is the surprise shot of the year.

6) A David vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014 A flashy yet brutal attack, seemingly out of nowhere.

7) Adams vs Caruana, 2014 The White Queen and the Black Rook do a funny dance in this one.

8) Caruana vs Topalov, 2014 Two bruisers go at it.

9) Caruana vs Karjakin, 2014 Nice endgame grind with a cute finishing touch.

10) Carlsen vs Radjabov, 2014 Radjabov catches Carlsen on an off day but cleverly carries home the ending.

  OhioChessFan: Of course one point of this voting is to remind people of great games, or show great games that might have been overlooked. I always hit all the links of all the voters since they had <some> reason for the picks they made. Some people go for the objectively best games, some go for their favorite players, or favorite openings, or whatever catches their fancy. Always entertaining and sometimes fantastic chess. I happened to miss the Topalov-Vallejo game, for example, and got to enjoy it for the first time after seeing all the votes for it here.

  OhioChessFan: <Eyal: Spanish team of chess24 during the minute-or-so that passed from Carlsen's 26...Kd2?? to Anand's 26...a4?? in game 6 of the WC match.>

Thanks for that. You don't need to understand the language to capture the emotions.

  kellmano: <OCF> Did you check out the link of the blitz he provided? You don't have to be a chess player to realise that the position is unbelievable.
Jan-06-15

  OhioChessFan: Yes, and Carlsen putting his head in his arms TWICE was unbelievable.

So far we have all chosen a different game for #1. ;>D

Btw, Bok also played another brilliant Sicilian attacking game this year:

B Bok vs Y Yu, 2014

  tpstar: <offramp> Thanks for voting!

Your one nomination will get 10 points. You may choose up to nine more games by January 14, if you like; just put them in order please.

<Eyal> We Will We Will Bok-Yu!

Jan-07-15  FairyPromotion: <OhioChessFan: Of course one point of this voting is to [...] show great games that might have been overlooked.>

Exactly! Games by top players in top tournaments get our attention one way or the other. But there are still many gems in lower category events, national championships, opens, team competitions, women chess, and even in rapid/blitz events. I always come back to check others people's votes, and each year there were a few superb games that I had missed. For example B Bok vs W Spoelman, 2014 seems really special.

BTW tpstar, Carlsen vs S Osinovsky, 2014 is now in the database. (:

Jan-07-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <FairyPromotion> Wow, Osinovsky played a beautiful game to upset Carlsen. That is easily "Osinovsky's Immortal" for your Game Collection. Do you know him personally?

Hurry so you can make the first post on that game. =)

Jan-07-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yes, hurry, I even deleted what would have been the first post.
Jan-07-15  FairyPromotion: Thx a lot guys!

tpstar, no I don't know him personally. The game was played in a simul event organized by a chess site, and I gave the source in my post where I asked chessgames to upload this game. Neither me, nor my friend that told me about the game, don't know any titled players personally.

OCF, I feel bad that you deleted your post. I'm not really a believer that first post itself has a lot of meaning. I could have posted there before making my post here, but I wanted to prepare some analysis, and make a more useful post. Nevertheless I thank you for being thoughtful. Even though you shouldn't have deleted it, that's very kind of you. :)

  OhioChessFan: Well, a couple others got there anyway, one of them a possible rehabilitation of Carlsen's position!
