Wildcard Game #2
Wildcard #2: GM Joel Benjamin (NJ) vs GM Sergey Erenburg (BAL) 0-1
Arun Sharma: Given all the commentary we received this year regarding bad GOTW picks, I'm sure there would be many readers who would be anxious to contribute to the "Top 100 Dumb Things the GOTW Judges did this season". While I can't deny such a list might be very interesting to read, if I personally was going to make a contribution to it, at the top would have to be this game not winning GOTW when it had the chance. Hopefully the GOTY judges give it its well deserved redemption in the GOTY contest as it was clearly very high quality (especially by league standards) and also had some interesting and exciting play in it, making it a very easy Wildcard Choice.
