2010 Game of the Year Contest
All other awards now being revealed, the main postseason attraction, the Game of the Year Contest, is on the agenda and will begin in mid to late December. As usual we will have twenty games in the contest, the seven "Wildcard" games picked by the GOTW Judges that will be joining the thirteen Games of the Week.
The announcement of those seven Wildcard games will begin in the next day or two with one game being announced every day.
The full details are:
1st: $700 ($600 to the winner, $100 to the loser)
The judging panel will also be fairly different, though not quite unfamiliar, with all but one of the judges being a GOTY veteran from some previous season. The five judges are:
GM Jan Gustafsson
GM Robert Hess
FM Ingvar Johannesson
WIM Alisa Melekhina
FM Ron Young
And so those are the complete 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 within the next couple of days!
