   luzhin has kibitzed 2066 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-22-15 Bologan vs Ivanchuk, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: A dramatic exploitation of 'the unprotected piece'--in this case the Qa8 after 18...Bd8 'unprotected' her Majesty.
   Nov-21-15 A Giri vs Shirov, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 31.Rd1! was a neat trick, but very suprising that such a supreme tactician as Shirov should have missed it.
   Nov-18-15 Van Wely vs J Borisek, 2015
luzhin: 27...Ne3!! is fabulous. If 28.Bxd6 Nf1+ 29.Kg1 Nxg3+ 30.Kh2 Rh1 mate!
   Nov-18-15 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 22.Bb3 has been widely mentioned in commentaries above as the best move. But Aronian had planned (and Carlsen had seen) 22.Bb3 Bh3!! 23.gxh3 Qf4 (idea: Rd6, Qf3 and mate)24.Nc4 R8d3! 25.Nxd2 Rxh3 and mate. In this variation White can give up his Q with 25.Qxd2 but this must be close ...
   Nov-17-15 Carlsen vs Pelletier, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: The worst blunder of Carlsen's career, I think. I don't know what was on his mind, but it can't have been chess.
   Nov-16-15 Adams vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: I believe this is Adams' first win against Aronian in classical chess, which makes it doubly satisfying.
   Nov-16-15 M Marin vs J Rodgaard, 2015
luzhin: 15.Nxb5 is amazing...but unsound. 16...Bd6?? looks like sheer panic, when 16...Be7 17.c7 0-0 was a clear line to safety and a winning material advantage.
   Nov-16-15 Short vs H Melkumyan, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: I wouldn't exactly describe it as tragic, or even unfortunate: Black is better from the early middle-game and gradually increases his advantage. But 45...Bd4! is neat and most precise.
   Nov-16-15 Naiditsch vs B Esen, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 24.Nd8+ is a lovely move, leading to some exquisite mating patterns.
   Nov-15-15 I Sokolov vs Sedlak, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: Nikolic prefers resigning to 32.Qxd6 Qh3 33.Rg1 Qxh2+! 34.Kxh2 Rh5 mate.
