    My apologies for not including SM Denys Shmelov - GM Conrad Holt, week 4, USCL Game of the Week draw.  When I was gathering games, I was only looking at wins.  But, this game, obviously, was deserving of consideration.  Oops!... I'm surprised our knowledgeable Blitz fans did not call me out on this.  If you want to vote for this game, just leave a scathing comment.

    Oh well, I hope Denys will forgive me.  - Mark
