Game of the Year Full Details

Now that the individual awards have all been announced, the main thing left for the 2009 Season is the Game of the Year Contest which will begin in early January. Before that though, we will be announcing the seven "Wildcard" games that will be joining the thirteen Games of the Week in the contest, and that announcement will begin in the next day or two. Prior to that though, these are the full details of the contest:

The prizes will be the same as last year, with the top five getting the following prizes:

1st: $500
2nd: $300
3rd: $200
4th: $100
5th: $50

The judging panel though will be very, very different as just like last year only one judge will be a veteran from the previous year's panel. We will again have five judges though and they are:

GM Robert Hess
GM Gregory Kaidanov
GM Alex Yermolinsky
WFM Tatev Abrahamyan
FM Ron Young

And so those are the official details of the contest. Once more, be sure to keep an eye out on the USCL site for the announcement of the seven Wildcard games which will begin tomorrow!
