Wildcard Game #3
Wildcard #3: IM Jan van de Mortel (CHC) vs GM Jaan Ehlvest (TEN) 1-0
Jim Dean: This game narrowly missed out on being GOTW, losing only by tiebreaker to a very entertaining Open Sicilian. That, combined with being a game where a very strong GM was beaten in an opening system he has written a book about, led me to picking this fine victory as my Wildcard choice.
