   Aug-20-15 Sosonko vs M Rivas Pastor, 1978
 
luzhin: For what it is worth, my computer program considers 19...Nd7! to be far superior to 19...Rd7. It would be interesting to know why Rivas, having seen the general concept, chose the rook sac.
 
   Aug-13-15 I Bukavshin vs I Khairullin, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: 56.Nd2! is a terrific tactic, whose full point becomes clear after 58.Rxf7! (the only path to a win). At the end, 59...Qf1+ 60.Kg3 Qg1+ 61.Kh4 g5+ 62.Kh5 and White's King is just joining in the fun.
 
   Aug-13-15 Svidler vs D Khismatullin, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: From a problemist's point of view, the 'puzzle' is wrecked by the fact that 29...Nd3 mate is a dual solution. But in practical chess it merely meant that Black had a pleasant dilemma as to which of two spectacular mates to play.
 
   Aug-04-15 T Slade vs Koby Kalavannan, 2015
 
luzhin: Spectacular game between two players with a combined age of 27! 25.Kg2?? was suicidal: after 25.Kh1 Black has insufficient comp for the exchange. In the game, Black could have wrapped things up beautifully with 26...Nh5+!! 27.Qxh5 Qg2+ 28.Kf4 Bg5+! 29.Qxg5 Qf3 mate.
 
   Aug-01-15 M Burrows vs A Golding, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: Not bad for an 11 year old! The tricky 35...g5 would have been well answered by 36.Rf1 but White clearly missed the kid's knock-out blow 37...Qxg5!
 
   Jul-29-15 D Howell vs D Gormally, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: Incredible end-game with both GMs very short of time. Gormally's 65..e4! was the only chance to avoid total asphyxiation but if Howell had played 70.Rb7 the win should have been straightforward. Once Black's King gets in, however, it's not easy and after 116.Kg1? Gormally could ...
 
   Jul-26-15 David Howell (replies)
 
luzhin: Howell has just won Leiden with the amazing score of 8.5 out of 9 -- sending his live rating soaring well above 2700.
 
   Jul-25-15 Navara vs Adams, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: For some reason Navara just can't get going against Adams -- the Englishman's career score against him is four wins to zero. although they are of similar strength. The 'jinx' opponent is an interesting phenomenon, emphasising the psychological element in top-flight chess.
 
   Jul-22-15 Adams vs Navara, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: 31.Bd5! wins by force but the tactics are not simple and as Adams pointed out, he was running short of time.
 
   Jul-10-15 Wang Chen vs Wei Yi, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: Impressive indeed. 23.Qe3? with the idea of grabbing material while undeveloped was really asking for trouble: which he got.
