tpstar: <diceman> I read on the Internet that feckless liberal pundits are refusing to help sick people. That is so wrong. I bet they don't accept Obamacare insurance plans either. <OhioChessFan> I hope you finish your City of Moscow piece. We cannot allow conservative voices to ...

<Draw of the Year> I heard draws are boring. ;>D

  tpstar: 1) D Khismatullin vs Eljanov, 2015 44. Kg1!! is the Move of the Year, creating a major piece endgame for all of the texts.

2) Ivanchuk vs W So, 2015 14 ... Nxg2!! was an inspired Marshall Gambit bombshell changing theory.

3) Wei Yi vs L Bruzon Batista, 2015 A King hunt for the ages.

4) Motylev vs E Najer, 2015 Surprising double Rook sacrifice for mate.

5) I Nepomniachtchi vs S Sjugirov, 2015 35. Qxd6!! caps off a brilliant attack.

6) Carlsen vs Li Chao, 2015 Carlsen calmly plays around a mate threat.

7) Navara vs R Wojtaszek, 2015 White's King goes for a long walk.

8) W So vs Nakamura, 2015 Relentless attack by Black.

9) Anand vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015 33 ... Rxf2!! wins neatly.

10) W So vs Ding Liren, 2015 Entertaining Queen versus three pieces contest.

  OhioChessFan: Thanks to everyone who has voted. I am playing over every single game since they all had something to recommend them. In fact, if I did another vote, I'd probably have at least 5 different games in my top 10. I hope we get a lot more voters, for two reasons: One, to celebrate the very best games, which are the best, even if everyone says so, and two, to see games I might have otherwise missed this year.
Jan-08-16  FairyPromotion: <OhioChessFan> I'll second what you wrote. Every year I see many spectacular games that have skipped my radar. I.e. last month I was a bit busy, and didn't follow much chess, but thanks to this thread I enjoyed going over the Matlakov v Bok, Carlsen v Chao, and Mamedyarov v Lenderman games.

Here's another fun game that I was quite impressed with: A Korobov vs Sutovsky, 2015. It's probably not top 10 worthy, but the way Korobov paralyzes black's pieces is something worth playing over.

Maybe <tpstar> should advertise his competition in other pages, so the others can join in. Or maybe we should do it for him? ;)

  whiteshark: If someone likes to vote for another great attacking game (check Gustafsson's analysis!) I Iljiushenok vs Eljanov, 2015
Jan-09-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eyal: If we're mentioning games that weren't included in the top-10 choices, I liked Robson vs Y Vovk, 2015 (best French Defense game of the year?) a lot.

  Golden Executive: RE: <Golden Executive:

1. Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2015

  Penguincw: Unfortunately, I haven't been active enough in 2015 to really remember a bunch of games. Maybe I should start keeping a collection...

Anyway, I quickly scrapped together this list:

1. D Khismatullin vs Eljanov, 2015

Khismatullin allows Eljanov to take a free rook with check!

2. Wei Yi vs S Bromberger, 2015

One slip from Bromberger, and Wei Yi wins. However, instead of re-capturing the queen, Wei Yi makes <8> Zwichenzug moves!

3. M Matlakov vs B Bok, 2015

4. Svidler vs D Khismatullin, 2015

Really cool double check and mate.

5. Carlsen vs Topalov, 2015

Carlsen, who lost to Topalov in black in a winning position (lost on time), loses to Topalov again in black in the same year, this time, without the clock being a major factory.

6. Wei Yi vs N R Vignesh, 2015

Black defends really well, and ends up winning after Wei Yi blunders.

7. Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015

8. A Giri vs Grischuk, 2015

Jan-14-16

  tpstar: <Penguincw> Thanks for voting!

You may add two more by the end of the day, or else just those eight.

Game Collection: Best Games of 2015

Jan-15-16  HeMateMe: Game of the year? Very Talesque, going king hunting while his own king is facing mate in one!

<Carlsen vs Li Chao, 2015>

  OhioChessFan: Thanks for running the show <tps> I'm still working on playing all the games over. Interesting to me that MC had 4 games in the top 10, but my #1 was an MC game that didn't make the cut.
Jan-15-16  HeMateMe: That was my vote, BTW, one vote for game of the year, just one game.
Jan-15-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <Carlsen-Chao> That great battle received five votes (#6 on my list) and finished the year at #8. Too late to vote for it now, either here or the site awards. See what happens when liberal voices fall silent.

#1 & #2 were separated by one point, underscoring how every list is important. This also reinforces why we don't post running updates during the voting, which has been shown to affect the results. Twice.

<OhioChessFan> Thanks for your help with the Best Games contest. I hope everyone had a great time!

Jan-15-16  Keyser Soze: I second mr. <ohio>. Thanks for hosting the show. Great fun replay all those games!

  Karposian: <OhioChessFan: Interesting to me that MC had 4 games in the top 10, but my #1 was an MC game that didn't make the cut.>

Yeah, I had that game on my list also. A game from Tata Steel where Carlsen convincingly outplayed Radjabov.

Thanks for running this, <tpstar>. Like <OCF> I enjoy playing through the games that people voted for.

I think the Carlsen vs Li Chao, 2015 game is highly entertaining, but not one of the year's best games in terms of quality.

Jan-15-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: Carlsen-Radjabov (Tata, 2015) received 11 points for 17th place. Carlsen played well but Black's Bb6 was pretty useless.

<highly entertaining, but not one of the year's best games in terms of quality> The eternal question of substance versus style. =)

Jan-26-16  Bdellovibrio: "Black Knights Matter" Good grief, the puns are strong with this one.
Jan-26-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <Bdellovibrio> Nice to see you. =)

That title is an inside joke of sorts, as I find BLM to be a hate group.

Be sure to vote next year! ;>D
