   Oct-18-16 Short vs Yifan Hou, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: The big blunder was 29...Re2+? not just because it chases the White king where it wants to go, but because Black's rook is perfectly placed on c2: thus after, say, 29...Kf7! 30.Kd5 h5 31.Kc6? Bd4! immediately equalises.
   Oct-18-16 I Sokolov vs J van Foreest, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: 24.Qxf5! is nice. But 18...dxc4? was asking for it. After 18...Nc7 Black is not doing too badly.
   Oct-17-16 R Rabiega vs R Rapport, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: I liked Rapport's last desperate swindle attempt with 37...Rc2. The point is 38.Re3+ Ka2 39.Rxf3?? Rc1+ 40.Kg2 exf3 mate!
   Oct-12-16 G Sargissian vs Shirov, 2016
luzhin: You are right: towards the end of a grueling game in the final round of a tough tournament, it is no disgrace to have missed Shirov's idea. These are humans, not computers.
   Oct-12-16 R Kurbedinov vs A Predke, 2016
luzhin: Please read my comment more carefully. I wrote 19.f3, not 20.f3. After 19.f3 Black's Knight is still on e5. So White would answer 19...Qxh2+??? with 20.Kxh2, winning.
   Oct-03-16 Wang Hao vs L van Foreest, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: 30.Nf5?? was terrible. After 30.Qxd6! White should win, forcing an ending with an extra piece for two pawns.
   Oct-03-16 W So vs D Harika, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: On the contrary, if it were a Rook on f1 then White would happily play 18.Rxf2!
   Sep-30-16 Gelfand vs Mamedyarov, 2016
luzhin: Actually it was only the asking-for-it 29.Kg2 which allowed the attack to succeed. After 29.Qh3 keeping Black's Bishop out of h5, White is fine.
   Sep-20-16 D Howell vs J Cori, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: Well, Howell could try 28.a5 and if then 28...b5 29.b4 opening up the black squares in the area of Cori's king. Basically almost anything was better than 28.Qf4?? because until then Black couldn't play f5, the move which gives him massive central and K-side control.
   Sep-16-16 J Penrose vs B Soderborg, 1959
luzhin: 24...Kf7?? is completely incomprehensible, when 24...0-0-0 leaves Black much better. Perhaps he was so confused by the earlier detonations on f7 that he thought his King had already moved and therefore couldn't castle!
