   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!
   Sep-16-16 J Penrose vs Keres, 1956
luzhin: 23.f5! was excellent: the error was 25.Bc2? when instead 25.Bxd7! Rxd7 26.Qe2 Qh6 27.f6 Nc6 28.Nd5 White would be close to winning.
   Sep-15-16 Blackburne vs C Hanson, 1876
luzhin: Black's last move was incomprehensible. After the obvious 18...Kf6 it's not at all clear that White is winning.
   Sep-13-16 Caruana vs Eljanov, 2016
luzhin: This won the Olympiad for the USA. It was the only decisive game in the match v the silver-medallist Ukraine team.
   Sep-12-16 B Adhiban vs S Minero Pineda, 2016
luzhin: 46...Be7 with Rxd5 to follow would have been a dead draw. But 46...Rf5?? walked into the problem-like 47.Bf6!! and White grabs an improbable victory.
   Sep-12-16 E Safarli vs Short, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: Playing 19.Nh2?? Safarli must have missed that after 19...Bc5! 20.Ng4 Bxg4 21.Qxg4 the clever 21..h5! wins a piece whether 21.Qxh5 Nf4 or 21.Qf5 Nh4. Powerful play throughout by the world's best 50+ year old.
   Sep-10-16 Wang Yue vs S Mareco, 2016
luzhin: What a mating finish! Note that 36...Bxg3+! has to be seen before playing 34...Rg3++!! -- otherwise Black would be losing. The finish would be 37.Kxg3 Rf3+ 38.Kh4 Qxh3+ 39.Kg5 Qh6 mate.
   Sep-09-16 McShane vs Yu Yangyi, 2016
luzhin: 32.Bxe5! is spectacular, but Yu finds the best response and a draw it is.
   Sep-09-16 Adams vs Wang Yue, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: A classic Adams victory. Nothing much seems to be happening, but suddenly after 35...Qe2?? 36.f3!! the Spider catches his fly: Wang has no more moves.
