Best players and games of month

Here we list the best players (and also games) of the month. Whilst chess is often played for fun, when the big names play it's often for real money. If you don't think your chess skills are up to that, you could also try your hand at poker (as this guide shows you), where strategy and psychology are still needed. In the meantime, see below for the best games and players by month:
