I feel it's poor form to discuss which nominees are bad or which one you voted for before the poll is closed. It could conceivably affect other voters.

I know I also mentioned who I "probably would have" voted for. But at that point the poll was closed and I didn't know it would be reopened.

Great that it is still possible to vote. For me it was a hard choice to pick Vigorito just a tiny bit ahead of Sielecki  Cool

Seriously? there is a Lakdawala book there? Ugh. There are not enough hands in the world for this face palm.
He is an absolutely awful writer. He does abominable things with language.  Roll Eyes

And, in a book in the ‘Opening Repertoire’ series, makes no attempt to provide a proper repertoire. One can only assume that whoever nominated this book was having a laugh.

Suddenly 6 new votes in the past ~ 48 hours - almost 40 days after the original end date! We like to take our time to make decisions here on ChessPub.  Smiley

With that rate it may be worth keeping it open for a few more days. But most consistent would be to just close it.

I've just made it 'unsticky' just in case some members didn't see it at the top of the list. I will close it in a couple of days if that's OK with everyone?

I see there are still votes dripping in occasionally, probably when someone comments and the thread becomes easier to find. Around two weeks ago there were 35 votes; now there are 38.

Well, no new closing date was announced when the poll reopened. It's up to Tony how long it stays open.

It's no longer clear when this closes. I'd assumed it had already finished, but I've just been allowed to vote, so it seems the poll is still running.

Thanks for keeping the vote open. I only noticed it when it got top billing! I have now voted.

Thank you. I've now voted. I guess I missed it as it was in the upper section titled "Important threads" !!!

I would appreciate that very much. I think more will vote if more become aware of it.

paradoxical effect of pinning the thread

This might be one of the reasons, I normally only make the thread 'sticky' (so it stays at the top) after the poll is closed myself. I suppose it might be possible to re-open the poll for a couple of weeks, I can look into this if anyone wants? Undecided
