GOTW: Li - M.Plotkin, 2019

Our Canadian Game of the Week won Best Game Award at the 2nd Ivy League Challenge. It was the third round game between FM Ethan Li (Princeton) and FM Mark Plotkin (UofT). From the diagram it is White to move....

The 2nd Ivy League Challenge took place at Hart House at the University of Toronto, November 8-10, 2019. It saw teams from (in alphabetical order): Harvard, MIT, Princeton, U of T, and Yale, in a 4-player team RR. Top players included GM Andrew Tang (Princeton), IM Advait Patel (UofT A), WGM Qiyu Zhou and three more FMs. 

The U of T A team won all its matches to finish first overall, ahead of Princeton and MIT. Special mention should go to FM Mark Plotkin, who scored 5/5 and won the Best Game Award (see below).

All games were broadcast live thanks in part to the discount DGT purchase made available by FIDE through the CFC and Strategy Games.
