    maybe we could have a vote for best game of the year or/and best combination of the year where people can submit one of their games and then let the community decide what game/combination is the best. And the winner will have this mentioned in his profile like with tourneys.

    This is a good enough idea to just run as a thread in the chess forums... perhaps once the info gets long enough, Russ could make a poll?!

    Good idea.

    Here's my nomination:

    Game 540416

    My first match with ex-RHP member James Woodley (last rated close to 1800 at his time of exile).

    very nice idea!
    we need a shortlist that russ can stick in a vote forum .. how will we make a shortlist without it being overrun by the rec-sluts?

    It would be cool if we could use the new "vote" feature for this.

    Definitely a forerunner in the short game category...

    Don't let No1 see it, though: He'll be shoving it down Arrakis's throat with an "I told you so.".

    This is one of my favourites, a rook sac, and the knights wade in: Game 508169

    My best so far this year is Game 789994.

    I am usually too impatient to build up my pieces for an attack like that.
