   Oct-29-14 Gelfand vs Jobava, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: 30...Bxc4! is a brutal conclusion. Obviously if 31.Bxc4 Re1+ 32.Nxe1 Qxe1+ 33.Kc2 Ne3+ wins the Queen. Even prettier is 31.Rd2 Bxb3 32.axb3 Re1+ 33.Nxe1 Qxe1+ 34.Rd1 Qxd1+ 35.Kxd1 Ne3+ and Black ends up with two knights against one!
 
   Oct-25-14 Carls vs Vidmar, 1914
 
luzhin: The tournament was abandoned, unfinished.
 
   Oct-19-14 A Indjic vs Lu Shanglei, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Fantastic play from a very unpromising opening. Indjic had to try 25.Qe3 when after ...Nf1 26.Bxf1 Re4 27.Qxe4 dxe4 28.g3 White is still in the game thanks to the power of his N on e5. After 25.b3?? Black's attack is merciless.
 
   Oct-17-14 Mohammad Ashraf vs J Westerberg, 2014
 
luzhin: White's remarkable 30.Bd3!!? sacrificing a whole rook for the attack, succeeds when Black blunders catastrophically on the last move before time control (40...Ne4??). Really brave play against an opponent graded almost 300 points higher.
 
   Oct-16-14 Lu Shanglei vs V Fedoseev, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: 20.Re5! is a bone-cruncher, threatening not just the Bf5 but also 21.Ra5 trapping Black's Q.
 
   Oct-15-14 S Marcovici vs J Schollmann, 1989
 
luzhin: An astounding game, even if White's original piece sac (10.0-0) was completely unsound. After Black missed the ingenious defence 19...Qe6! (with the idea 20.Rxe6 dxe6 21.Qg4 exd5 22.Qg3 dxe4) he was lost. 28.Rc3 wins, but a slight pity White's didn't play 28.f5+! which leads to a ...
 
   Oct-13-14 L Dominguez vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: As Caruana could tell you, the plural of tempo is tempi.
 
   Oct-12-14 A Tari vs Wei Yi, 2014
 
luzhin: White spends 8 moves moving his Q far from the action on a4. No wonder he gets mated soon afterwards.
 
   Oct-09-14 M Senthil vs Parab Ritviz, 2014
 
luzhin: Quite funny ending: why not 51...Rc5 straight away? Because of 52.Qg8+! forcing stalemate!
 
   Oct-08-14 G Gaehwiler vs B Bok, 2014
 
luzhin: Good to see the Evans Gambit in action. White's 23.Bd8!! was clever: the main point is 23...Raxd8 24.Rxe8+ Rxe8 25.Ne7+! Rxe7 26.Qb8+ and mate next move.
