2014 Best Game Prize

E-mail Print


Congratulations to Wes Bell, who has won the 2014 Potter/Wason best game prize for his victory over Dominique Conterno in the Gordon Evans Memorial British Championship 2014-16.

Many thanks to Ian Brooks for once again judging the competition. There were six entries this year, all of which were considered to be worthy candidates and led to Ian stating this was “the hardest best game competition I have judged”.  Ian’s summary of the winning game was that “it has a nice flow to it and is well played by both sides. At first glance it seems that black may have been escaping after the exchange sac gaining the Bishop pair and Queenside attack, but white played accurately, forcing off the queens and trading pieces at the right time. It was fitting that the end came with white finally returning the material to set up a forced win.”

The winning game can be seen at: https://www.iccf.com/game?id=749415.
