   May-21-15 Nakamura vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 19.Nc5! is most elegant. Though Black made things easier for Naka with the blunder 25...Rd4??.
   May-16-15 S Agdestein vs C Hansen, 2015
luzhin: Would have been nice ending for White if Agdestein had played the natural 23.Qg4 instead of 23.Qf4?? After 23.Qg4 Bb2 24.Bf6 g6 now 25.Qf4 wins for White.
   May-07-15 I Nepomniachtchi vs S Sjugirov, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 35.Qxd6!! beautifully illustrates the power of the raking Bishops. The prettiest line is 35...Qe8 36.Qxf8+! Qxf8 37.fxg7+ Qxg7 38.Rxd8+ and mate next move.
   May-06-15 Motylev vs E Najer, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: The fireworks began after 23...Bb4!! with the stunning point that 24.Nxh8 is answered by 24...Bd2+!! forcing mate in 3.
   May-05-15 D Vocaturo vs M Quinn, 2015
luzhin: If 30.Qxd2 Bf1 checkmate-- very pretty.
   Apr-25-15 Adams vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 14...h6? is not the way to play such positions, as Adams demonstrates. The correct plan is to play 14...Bc8, giving Black's Nf6 the square d7 after White plays 15.g5. This was what Kasparov did in the epic 24th game of his 1985 match against Karpov. That reached an identical position
   Apr-15-15 D Howell vs G Guseinov, 2015
luzhin: Yes, the problem is that when the game is over, the arbiters place the White king on e4 and the Black king on e5. But I was watching the game live online, and it registered 44.Kd6 (the completely obvious winning move) before it changed to Ke4 -- as a result of the arbiter's action as
   Apr-14-15 A Gupta vs E Kanter, 2015
luzhin: Remarkable game. Black should have played 42...d3! after which his Q+N+QP do indeed beat White's offside double Queens. But in the game, White could have won with the bold 44.Kxd3, though it takes time.
   Apr-14-15 V Fedoseev vs D Howell, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: I wonder if the two young GMs realised that up until 12...Nf8 they were following Alekhine-Lasker New York 1924? Anyway, Lasker would have admired the way Fedoseev salvaged a draw from a dire position and thus managed to tie for first with his opponent.
   Apr-13-15 N Grandelius vs G Nigalidze, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: Hardly: Tigran Petrosian, the cheating victim, has a higher ELO rating than Nils Grandelius.
