Game of the year 2018

At the end of the year, we again invite our readers to vote — for the player of the year, the women player of the year, the game of the year, the combination of the year, and the endgame of the year. And for the "newcomer" of the year 2018.

For every poll, our editorial team created a shortlist. Which is, of course, subjective though a team selected it. To make things easier we limited the shortlist to five or sometimes ten proposals and some of you might miss their favourites — we know that our shortlist is just one of many possible.

But all the five games selected by the editors of the ChessBase Magazine are good enough to become the "Game of the Year 2018". But which game is your absolute favourite? What game do you think is the "Game of the Year 2018"? Enjoy the games (below) and take your pick!
