   Mar-08-17 I Kovalenko vs Sveshnikov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Not bad for a 67 year old!
   Feb-25-17 R Buhmann vs N Vitiugov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: 29...Re1+!! is very neat.
   Feb-25-17 D Harika vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Harika's 12.Qh4!! is devastating, as after 12...hxg5 13.Nxg5 Bxd4+ 14.Kh1 Kg7 15.Qh7+ Kf6 16.Nxf7 the attack is decisive. Tan had to play 11...Re8 and if then 12.Qh4 Black would have had reasonable chances to defend with 12...Be6!
   Feb-23-17 Borna Derakhshani vs Huzman, 2017
luzhin: It is a rule of the Iranian authorities that their sportsmen must not engage in competition against Israelis.It is nothing to do with the wishes of the individual Iranian competitors. They, after all, are the only ones who suffer bad consequences as a result of the so-called ...
   Feb-16-17 Shiqun Ni vs V Gunina, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Agreed: it's known that 3...Nf6 is the better chance for dynamic counterplay. But Gunina's main defence against 1.e4 is the Caro-Kann. Players often try the Sicilian in a must-win situation as Black (Caruana in the last round of the 2016 candidates against Karjakin, Karpov in the ...
   Feb-04-17 Yifan Hou vs B Lalith, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Shortsight, the purpose of randomly generated pairings is not to give each player what he or she wants (even if that were possible). As I said, if Yifan wants to avoid playing other women, she should do what Judit Polgar did and play in all-play-all events as the only female. By ...
   Jan-31-17 B Ider vs Yifan Hou, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: wtpy, after 51.Qh7+ Bh5 Hou has complete shelter from checks and if then 52.Kxf1 Rb8 wins.
   Jan-31-17 Svidler vs Short, 2017
luzhin: I think, as I suggested above, that he had completely missed 28...Ne5! If he had seen it, he would surely have played 28.Qe6+ instead of 28.Bb5
   Jan-29-17 Short vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: 63...Kd7 looks terrible, abandoning the g-pawn, but the problem was that 63...Kf7 allows 64.Rc7+ Kf8 65.Rxg7! Kxg7 66.Kxc3, and this K+P ending is trivially winning for White.
   Jan-29-17 Adams vs Ju Wenjun, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Not that is matters, but Adams could have forced mate one move sooner with the spectacular 32.Rf6+! Nxf6 33.g3 mate. If Ju felt unwell before the game, she certainly would have felt terrible afterwards!
