2018 Most Beautiful Game Award:   Gavyn Sanusi-Goh


Often between two players of equal strength, games can become gridlocked, seemingly with no way through. But the mark of a strong player is the ability to break through these gridlocks with methodical planning. The game between Gavyn Sanusi-Goh and Tanya Kolak in The Frost showed this principle where white slowly manoeuvred their pieces into optimum positions before making a winning breakthrough on the kingside.
