   Dec-09-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: It's the voluntary king march to e3 in the opening that gets me. Steinitz was right after all....
   Dec-07-17 S Volkov vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: 23...e6!! is a fabulous move.
   Nov-20-17 Aronian vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: I think the reason Black failed to anticipate 27.d6!! is that it is not a check. In King-hunts, these are the most difficult moves to see in advance.
   Nov-19-17 Nakamura vs Radjabov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Marvellous game by Nakamura. And the spectacular 20.Qd6 was the defining move, as the resultant White pawn on d6 permanently prevented the central pawn mass advance on which Sicilian players rely for counterplay.
   Nov-15-17 Carlsen vs Ding Liren, 2017
luzhin: Carlsen's automatic recapture on move 25 passed up a most unusual winning tactic: 25.Kg2!! (or indeed 25.Kh2)
   Nov-12-17 L Dominguez vs W So, 2017
luzhin: After 24...exd3 25.Qh7+! Kxh7 26.hxg7+ and mate in 2. Actually the same idea works against 24...Re6.
   Nov-05-17 I Salgado Lopez vs M Mchedlishvili, 2017
luzhin: 33...Qd5?? 34.Qg8+! Ouch.
   Nov-05-17 A Ushenina vs A Matnadze, 2017
luzhin: Certainly is-- and would have been even nicer if White had let the spectators see the conclusion 32.Kd2 Rd3 mate.
   Nov-05-17 J Bai vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Ding creates an immortal, studded with brilliance: 15...dxc3!!, 20...Rd4!!, 23...Rd2!!, 26...Kg7!!, and to crown it all, 32...Ne5+!! If 33.Nxe5 Bxf5+ 34.Kh5 Kg7+ and mate next move. But the most beautiful mate is 33.Kh4 Kg8+ 34.Nxh8 Bg5++. Stunning.
   Nov-03-17 H Banikas vs D Shengelia, 2017
luzhin: 29.Qg4! is so cute.
