   Aug-18-17 Karjakin vs Kasparov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: The problem with 31.Rf1? would have been revealed if Gary had found 31...e4! which wins the bishop (it can't move because of Ne2+ winning the Queen).
   Aug-15-17 Le Quang Liem vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Amazing swindle. The win for Caruana was only to be got by 50...Rf2! To be fair, Fabi was down to seconds at this point.
   Aug-15-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs Navara, 2017
luzhin: Complete mystery why Nepo didn't play 17.fxe4 which seems crushing (...Ngf6 18.Bxe6 Nxe4 19.Bxd7 Kxd7 20.Rf7+)
   Aug-08-17 Aronian vs W So, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Almost a shame So resigned, so we couldn't witness Aronian's amazing concept in full: after 32...Qxd3 33.Rh3!! Rxd5 34.Qh4 wraps up. Or if 32...Qxd3 33.Rh3!! Rc4 34.Qg5 will mate in short order.
   Aug-06-17 Anand vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Vishy reminds the chess public what his GM colleagues have never forgotten: that he has a special tactical gift. Bravo, Tiger of Madras!
   Aug-04-17 Aronian vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: And Caruana could have saved himself a lot of work with 40...g5+! with the point 41.Ke3 Bc5+ --but then we would have missed a fascinating ending.
   Aug-02-17 Jobava vs Short, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: ChessHigherCat, after 34.Re7 Qd8 the Kg8 is no defence against Rxf7: White plays 35.Rxf7! Kxf7 36.Rb7+ Kg8 37.f7+ and it's mate in 3.
   Aug-02-17 Aronian vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Pure Aronian in its verve and creativity. At first blush 13...Qxa3 14.Qxd7 Nb4 looks fine for Black. But then 15.Bc4!! and if 15...Nc2+ 16.Ke2 Nxa1 17.Qxe7 White,a Rook down, is winning (eg. 17...Bxc3 18.Ne5!)
   Jul-16-17 Kramnik vs V Fedoseev, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: It's also worth pointing out that in the game itself after 21.Re5, Black still had to be really careful. For example, after the obvious-looking 21...Qc6 22.d5 Qg6 23.Qf3 Black is lost, with no good defence to the threat of 24.Qa3+
   Jul-14-17 K Spraggett vs P Llaneza-Vega, 2007 (replies)
luzhin: From the point of view of the problemist, there is a 'dual solution' with 20.Kf2, which also leads to mate next move with 21.Bh3
