   Oct-05-18 T Hillarp Persson vs T Laurusas, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Bravo, Tiger! 30.Kf4!! and the mating King march to h6 is reminiscent of the 1991 Short-Timman brilliancy. But Tiger adds a Q sac. If 34...fxg6 35.Re7+ Kg8 36.Bd5+ Rf7 37.Re8+ Kg7 38.Rxf7 mate. One for every chess anthology.
   Aug-29-18 Aronian vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: It is the quiet moves in the attack which gain least attention, but which deserve the highest praise. I'm thinking of 21.Qc1! and 29.Ke3! It was the fact that neither of these moves were forcing, that produced errors in response.
   Jul-17-18 A Giri vs V Kovalev, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: The point is that the Qd2 stops Black's Qe3+. But on doesn't.
   Jul-11-18 R Praggnanandhaa vs W So, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Pragg must be kicking himself for missing 8.Bxf7+! which wins: e.g 8.Bxf7+ Kxf7 9.Ng5+ Kg8 10.Ne6 Qe8 11.Nc7 Qd8 12.Nxa8 and because of the inclusion of the moves 7.a5 a6 the WN escapes via b6.
   Jul-05-18 Valery Sviridov vs Motylev, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Neat: 24.Bxe2 Rxe2+ 25.Kg1 Rg2+ 26.Kf1 Rf2+ 27.Ke1 Re2 mate.
   Jun-16-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Sad: after 50...Bc6 Black was if anything, better. But in playing 50...c3?? he missed that after 51.d7 the intended 51...Ke7 loses to 52.f6+!
   May-03-18 V S Popov vs K Alekseenko, 2018
luzhin: No defence to 33.Qh6+! Bxh6 34.Rh7 mate.
   May-03-18 V Skatchkov vs P Maletin, 2018
luzhin: Fabulous double piece sac (20...Ne5+ and 21...Bxh3) If 22.gxh3 Qf2+ 23.Kg4 Bxe5 forces mate rapidly. Note also if 22.Bd3 Bg4+ 23.Kg4 Bh4 also forces mate. Bravo!
   Apr-24-18 E Delmar vs Gunsberg, 1889
luzhin: This is ridiculous. 10.Nxe5 wins a piece (if 10...Bxd1 11.Nc6+)
   Apr-04-18 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Caruana had to be precise right to the very end. 41.Qe5 looks like the quickest win--until you see Naiditsch's last ditch swindle 41...Qxf2+ 42.Kxf2 Nd3+ and Black wins!
