   Jan-14-17 R Rapport vs A Donchenko, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: 8.Qf3! had a really sneaky point. If 8...d5? with the idea of winning the Bb5 after the Nc4 moves, then 9.Qf4! with threats against b8 and also Nd6+ gives White a winning position.
 
   Jan-09-17 K Menyah vs A J Mestel, 2005
 
luzhin: Unfortunately, after 23...fxg6 there's nothing for White.
 
   Jan-03-17 M Lyell vs M Hansen, 2017
 
luzhin: After the cool 35.c4! White would surely have been winning (and 35.Ne3 wouldn't have been bad, either). But 35.Nb4?? is incomprehensible.
 
   Jan-03-17 S Mahadevan vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2017 (replies)
 
luzhin: Black's homework was better than White's! All these moves, up to and including the decisive 17...Nf3! had been seen before in Sparwel v Mihajlov 2013. The first deviation in this game was 20...Qg4 (not that it matters).
 
   Jan-03-17 C Rice vs A Hill, 2017
 
luzhin: A brutally efficient counter-attack. Black's 19...Nd4 caught White completely off-guard. In fact 20.g4! (preventing the threat of Nf5) would have left the game completely in the balance.
 
   Dec-31-16 A Muzychuk vs Zhao Xue, 2016
 
luzhin: Even for Blitz 29...Qxb2??? is an amazing howler. Whereas after 29...Bb4+ 30.axb4 Rxd4+ White can resign. Given that Muzychuk won the event by a half a point, this is of some significance.
 
   Dec-31-16 A Muzychuk vs A Kashlinskaya, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: Odd that Black didn't play 14...Bxd3 inflicting a truly dreadful pawn structure on White (and removing the advantage of the two Bishops).
 
   Dec-31-16 A Stratonowitsch vs Mohamed Ali Dima, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: Indeed, he lost all 21 games he played in this event.
 
   Dec-31-16 Carlsen vs V Onischuk, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: Carlsen's play here has the limpid simplicity of Capablanca: there is no higher praise. Note that 29...Rxe6 loses to 30.c6+!
 
   Dec-29-16 Ivanchuk vs Li Chao, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: The position at move 35 is spectacular and instructive. The entire piece armies of both sides are lasered in on the Black Knight on d5. As the Knight is pinned, and defended by one fewer pieces than it is attacked by...it drops off.
