2007's Greatest Chess Games
Compiled by iron maiden

The 4th annual vote for the greatest games of 2007 commenced on Tuesday, January 1, 2008 and continued until Thursday, January 10. Kibitzers could vote for up to ten games from the year 2007, assigning a number to each of their choices, indicating which game they thought was best, second-best, and so on. Any nonvariant game of chess in the database, including those played under rapid, blitz, blindfold and simul conditions, could be voted for. I awarded ten points for the first choice, nine for the second, eight for the third, and so on down to the tenth game, which earned one point. The ten games with the most points were included in this collection to stand forever as the community's choices for the absolute best chess moments of 2007.
