Gazprom, General Partner of the first Online Chess Olympiad, is the sponsor of the Brilliancy Prize for the best game of the competition.
A special trophy has been specially designed for the occasion, and FIDE has invited a panel of popular Streamers and YouTubers to be the judges. They will announce their votes along the week in their respective channels, and the final winner will be announced on Friday, once all their votes have been gathered. Judges have been asked to give 3 points to their favorite game, 2 to their second favorite, and 1 to the third.
This is the initial* list:
Anna Cramling (Sweden)
Anna-Maja Kazarian (Netherlands)
Antonio Radic (Croatia)
Ayelen Martinez (Argentina)
Carlos Matamoros (Ecuador)
Daniel King (UK)
Fiona Steil Antoni (Luxemburg)
Jesse February (South Africa)
Sagar Shah & Amruta Mokal (India)
Simon Williams (UK)
