Splat!

Carl

How about a forum devoted to fine/spectacular games such as the one below. 'Best of Chess' or somesuch title

SPLAT!!

Doubtless some folk will use the opportunity to publish their humdrum ego-wank win in the Much Piddling & District CL. But such posts can be chopped if not up to scratch. Mostly folk will find games like the one above, and bring them to collective attention

This one was also covered here and is more than worth a watch:

Not sure whether "splat" is the right word, but Sadler v Horton (no, not that Horton) from "round 5" of 4NCL, played just this last weekend, is certainly a game very far from the ordinary. Sadler has agreed with Danny G that it is his most Alpha Zero-like game yet and it is easy to see what they mean.
