|Jan-04-12|| ||hms123: <tpstar> I didn't realize that you were involved with the cg wiki article. I guess that's what comes from my being <least well informed>. I would like to suggest that my article in the August, 2011, issue of Chess Life be included as a reference for the article. |
<Chess Life, August, 2011, <<Brave New World: Human Intuition and Computer-assisted Chess>>, see pages 32-35>
|Jan-04-12|| ||tpstar: <hms123> Congratulations on your article being featured in "Chess Life" magazine! That is a major accomplishment, as there are all kinds of politics involved at that level. :-)|
Your article was specifically mentioned right after it was published, when we were trying to beef up the "References" portion, and I thought a Wikipedia editor here had listed it. Unfortunately some jealous troublemakers are trying to sabotage our Wikipedia entry, and they probably removed the citation already, so we should make sure to fix it after the site awards are over.
|Jan-04-12|| ||hms123: <tpstar> Thanks on all fronts. I knew that the cg folks were happy to have a non-cyber reference available for the wiki page. I was lucky to get the opportunity thanks to <chesstoplay> as well as the help from lots of others.|
|Jan-04-12|| ||tpstar: <Blunderdome> <Penguincw> Thanks for voting!|
Lots of thrilling games nominated so far!
|Jan-04-12|| ||Annie K.: Hi Doc! :) I'd like to vote for Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2011, because I just have to love a game that features my trademark Nbd2-Nf1-Ng3 maneuver in the Giuoco that I had apparently forgotten to patent in time. ;D|
|Jan-04-12|| ||tpstar: <Annie K.> Thanks for voting! ;>D|
You may choose up to nine more games before January 14 or else just vote for that one.
I kept my promise, don't keep your distance ...
|Jan-04-12|| ||Annie K.: Thanks. :)
I know I could list 10, but that was the only game I really looked at closely - and actually understood, without any computer help, since it's so close to my own usual opening style - this year, so I'll probably stay with that one.
The truth is, I never left you... ;)
|Jan-05-12|| ||shivasuri4: Kamsky vs Svidler, 2011|
Zhao Xue vs T Sachdev, 2011
Kotronias vs Xiu Deshun, 2011
Shall choose the rest later.
|Jan-05-12|| ||tpstar: <shivasuri4> Thanks for voting! Those are great choices.|
You have until January 14 to list up to seven more games.
|Jan-05-12|| ||OhioChessFan: 1. Aronian vs Svidler, 2011|
2. Kramnik vs A Giri, 2011
3. Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2011
4. Morozevich vs Navara, 2011
5. Y Zherebukh vs R Hess, 2011
|Jan-06-12|| ||tpstar: <OhioChessFan> Thanks for voting!|
You were absolutely right that the Wikipedia entry should be updated and revised. I am concerned that Howard's "Chess Life" article citation is gone, so there may have been tampering already. After the site awards, we can work on this together as a group to get everything just right, then plan on an annual upgrade.
We will need a Wikipedia editor like <FSR> or <TheFocus> to help implement any changes.

You're welcome. :) If you want more people to vote, then you should put several reminders in the Kibitzer's Café (although it will start to be more like spamming).
|Jan-06-12|| ||tpstar: <you should put several reminders in the Kibitzer's Café>|
That is an excellent suggestion but lately I have been positively giddy about the grand opening of the Wesley Chess Cafe on 1/7/2012 which should be very informative all around!

Let me guess. It's one of those inventions my <cg> users. Just like the Kenneth Rogoff page.
|Jan-06-12|| ||twinlark: My nominations:
L Pantsulaia vs Judit Polgar, 2011 - ferocious attack by Polgar capped with a couple of problem like moves to bring the game home.
L Bruzon vs Ivanchuk, 2011 beautiful miniature by Ivanchuk against the Cuban number 2
Bu Xiangzhi vs Y Yu, 2011 Another tactical melee where the young Yangyi Yu emerges with a slight advantage in the ending, which he wins in virtuoso style
Negi vs F Caruana, 2011 The battle of the prodigies. Caruana sacs the exchange for a strong grip on the game, and finishes it in style.
A Timofeev vs D Frolyanov, 2011
An amusing and amazing pawn grab in the opening is actually theory. Then it quickly moves to an early endgame before the tactics really proliferate and Timofeev brings home a beautiful game with the threat of a long king march.
F Caruana vs Morozevich, 2011 A spectacular and original queen side attack by Morozevich produces a better endgame he wins in great style.
G Meier vs Kramnik, 2011 Kramnik’s spectacular crush of Meier at Dortmund.
P V Nandhidhaa vs D E Cori Tello, 2011
Deysi Cori rescues her position at the World Junior with some extraordinary tactics.
Ivanchuk vs Carlsen, 2011
Beautifuul endgame play by Carlsen to take out Ivanchuk.
Ivanchuk vs Nakamura, 2011
A brutally effective king side demolition by Ivanchuk.
|Jan-07-12|| ||tpstar: <twinlark> Thanks for voting! Ten fresh choices. =)|
Whenever I see that name I think of Penthesilea, the Amazon warrior from the Epic Cycle. ;>D
|Jan-08-12|| ||tpstar: 1) Mamedyarov vs Gelfand, 2011 Power to the Pawns! The most distinctive game of 2011 and the most impressive game from the Candidates event catapults Gelfand into the Challenger position to face Anand.|
2) Nakamura vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2011 You came to see the Mobscene. Nakamura's best win from Tata 2011.
3) Aronian vs Ivanchuk, 2011 A high profile victory in a high profile event. Planet Ivanchuk in orbit is a welcome sight.
4) Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2011 An incredible attack which flowed beautifully start to finish, amazing to follow in real time.
5) Zhao Jun vs Xiu Deshun, 2011 A brilliant combination featuring a fantastic Queen sacrifice for mate.
6) Aronian vs Svidler, 2011 A bold piece sacrifice in the endgame shows the depth of Aronian's imagination.
7) Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2011 Go Carlsen: quiet opening, even middlegame, better planning, classic center, exchange sacrifice, crushing attack. Carlsen makes it look so easy when it is anything but.
8) Topalov vs Kamsky, 2011 Another decisive game from the Candidates, spoiling Topalov's home cooking.
9) Kamsky vs Svidler, 2011 CG-Unit in da club, aight. Svidler had a monster year.
10) A Moiseenko vs Morozevich, 2011 Moro is back!
Everybody have fun voting! ;>D

<Shams> I liked your list too, especially that Jun-Deshun game. The Best Games contest is a blast, seeing all of these great games from last year, many of which I missed the first time.
Everybody have fun voting! ;>D
|Jan-10-12|| ||Penguincw: Who's in the lead? Or do we have to wait to figure that out?|
|Jan-10-12|| ||tpstar: <Penguincw> I appreciate you voting for the Best Games of 2011, along with your interest in the outcome. There have been previous editions where announcing the running totals during the voting actually affected the results, as people would choose certain games just to change the order. Therefore it is better to just vote until 1/14 and then find out the final tallies on 1/15.|
Thank you for your patience. =)
|Jan-10-12|| ||Penguincw: Ok. It's worth waiting. :)|
|Jan-11-12|| ||shivasuri4: <tpstar>,here are the rest.Admittedly coloured by my like of Anand and Morozevich,and me following some tournaments more keenly than others.Thanks to <OhioChessFan> for bringing to my attention the last game!|
