Great idea, I'll do the same (because I've been playing with the thought of donating to HD for a short while now). I'd like dark red; do I need to PM Blink about this, or can you do it, myndzi? Smile.png

We have our winner! Congrats to larrytetris for taking the final match 2-0. Great showing from piper, who went undefeated until the final round. And of course, thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this fun. I hope we get to see some new faces become old ones Smile.png

To recap, the prizes offered were:
1st place: $45
2nd place: $35
Best turn: $20
Drawing: 3 * $10

The drawing winners were TeTWiS, StS, and Profane.
1st and 2nd place prizes go to larrytetris and piper respectively.

All the replays are now available in the OP! I'll give a week for people to submit candidates for their favorite turns, then we'll hold a poll to determine the favorite. Gogogo!

There are a lot of nuances for what could count as a "best turn." In my opinion, such a turn would require foresight that puts the player in a decisively advantageous position or bails out the player in what appears to be a grim situation, not necessarily a turn that sends many many lines.

Often, characteristics of high-quality turns include:
1) No ways more elegant to achieve the same effect
2) Forces opponent to abort a setup
3) Catches opponent off guard, forcing them to take messy garbage
4) Shifts momentum to self (transitions from defensive to offensive), though this usually is a series of turns

With that said, here are my best turn nominations:
