Wildcard Game #2

Wildcard #2: GM Mesgen Amanov (CHC) vs IM Zhanibek Amanov (LA) 1-0

Greg Shahade: Personally I felt this game should have won Game of the Week when it had the chance, but after some discussion we settled on putting it in third place. It's not really important to me whether someone followed twenty moves of theory or made a mistake somewhere in the opening. It was an exciting game which was very complex and interesting, and the fans loved and enjoyed it.

Greg gives a wildcard to someone who reads a book, copies it move for move, and then still messes up? As nice as the queen sacrifice may look there was 0 creativity or quality in this game. We need new judging.
