Wildcard Game #5
Wildcard #5: SM Marc Esserman (BOS) vs FM Ron Simpson (CAR) 1-0
Arun Sharma: Like the previous Wildcard pick, Herman vs Naroditsky, this was definitely a game that caused a good deal of controversy during the GOTW discussion. While I don't really know if a consensus was ever really agreed upon on as to what place this game really should have gotten that week, one thing that no one really seemed to be debating was how well White played in this very interesting game. That being the case, this seemed like a very good Wildcard choice.
