   May-23-16 I Cheparinov vs V Sanal, 2016
luzhin: 24.Rxa7!! is very nice. It means that at the end White's Q will also pick up the c-pawn.
   May-17-16 E Blomqvist vs E Romanov, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: 25...Bd3! is a wonderful winning move. Note that 26.Qa8+ is answered by 26...Re8 CHECK.
   May-06-16 Adams vs F Ludvigsen, 1986 (replies)
luzhin: Worth noting that Adams was 15 at the time of this game.
   May-04-16 Igor Ivanov vs R Burnett, 1992
luzhin: This upset would make a good GoTD. The fun starts with 21...Nd5! and continues with 23...Kf8! If he had played 25.Rxa7! the GM would still have been in the game but Ivanov clearly missed 25...Qf6!! - and Black continued back-ranking with 26...Rb4! when after 27.Rd1 Nc3 it's all over ...
   Apr-30-16 M Matlakov vs F Fargere, 2014
luzhin: Nice game. Note that 32...Qxd5 fails to 33.Re8+!
   Apr-07-16 S Williams vs Plaskett, 1999
luzhin: Wonderful slugfest by two first-rate hackers. But both sides missed their chances. Black can play 16...Ne2+ 17.Kh1 Bxa1 18.bxc5 and then not 18...bxc5? but 18...Rd7!. Then, presumably in a time scramble, Black's 38...Ra3?? allowed 39.Qxc6. Still, a draw was the right result.
   Apr-04-16 Wei Yi vs T Dao, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: Another great anti-Sicilian king hunt by Wei Yi. Many might have won crudely with the discovered check 21.Bxh8+ but 21.Bd6+!! leads to a lovely forced mate.
   Mar-31-16 F Grafl vs M Konopka, 2001 (replies)
luzhin: This is a draw by perepetual check, not a win for White.
   Mar-20-16 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: 13.Bg5! is a clever move. It looks odd to give Black a tempo to play f6, but this 'extra' move gives White a target for his g-pawn--and the opening of a file against Black's king.
   Mar-19-16 Nakamura vs Topalov, 2016 (replies)
luzhin: 21...Bxc5!? is a wonderfully imaginative idea. Shame Topalov didn't see 31...Qf5! with the threat of 32...Rxh4. Seems White's only defence after 31...Qf5 was 32.Re3 and then 32...Rfd8 33.Rxf3 Qxc5 34.Qa2 Qd6 sees Black regain his piece with a pawn extra.
