   Dec-14-14 Kramnik vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: After 41...Ne5 42.Bxf6+ Kd7 (or 42...Kf7 43.Nh6+) 43.Qb5+ c6 44.Qb7 mate is indeed even better.
 
   Dec-14-14 Nakamura vs Adams, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: In fact this was clever preparation from Nakamura. In London 2012 Adams played this way against Topalov, but that game went 6.Bh4 c5. Nakamura worked out that the immediate c5 (before castling) is inferior if White has played 6.Bxf6.
 
   Dec-11-14 Adams vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: I have a feeling that if Adams had played 34.Re4 with the idea of doubling rooks on the g-file, Caruana would not have survived much longer. Anyway, fascinating game.
 
   Dec-09-14 Adams vs A Giri, 2014
 
luzhin: Probably so: though as Black Adams is actually much more classical than Fischer, always prepared to defend the Queen's Gambit or the Spanish, whereas Fischer preferred the King's Indian and the Najdorf Sicilian.
 
   Dec-03-14 Jobava vs D Naroditsky, 2014
 
luzhin: Fantastic fight, but it looks as though Black missed a win with 48...Kd8! Then after 49.e7+ Kxe7 50.Nd5+ Kd6 51.Nc3 Kc5 and Kb4 Black will Queen rapidly.
 
   Dec-02-14 Kramnik vs S Sjugirov, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: In principle, 25.Nf6+ is the first move you would consider, but it was still hard to see in advance that after the Knight is captured, the White g-pawn moves aside to allow the WQ to defend against Black's threat to mate on g2.
 
   Dec-02-14 H Fioramonti vs Korchnoi, 1993
 
luzhin: Something wrong here: Korchnoi would not have missed 28...Re1 mate. I can only assume White didn't miss it either and in fact played 28.Kf1
 
   Nov-18-14 S Bogdanovich vs A Kovchan, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Gorgeous combination: after 32.Rxa2 Rxe1+ 33 Rxe1 Bd3+ 34.Rc2 Bxc2+ forces mate. If White had played 31.Rxd5 Rxa2! is immediately decisive.
 
   Nov-15-14 Svidler vs M Matlakov, 2014
 
luzhin: Hugely entertaining from first to last, although Black had chances to win, such as 36...f5!! with the idea 37.gxf5 Rxd4 38.exd4 Qg8+
 
   Nov-14-14 Leko vs Svidler, 2014
 
luzhin: 22...gxf5!! turns the tables completely, inaugurating an unstoppable central pawn-roller
