   luzhin has kibitzed 2334 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-18-18 A Escobar Forero vs Bhupendra Niraula, 2016
luzhin: A lovely mate, but not as lovely as 30.Rxc8 Nf2++!
   Feb-14-18 Nakamura vs D Howell, 2018
luzhin: 8...d5!! must have come as shock to Naka. The point is that after 9.exd5 Nxd5 White has no useful discovered check and is in deep trouble. As he would have been in the game if Howell had found 13...Rd8!
   Feb-12-18 S Tsolakidou vs Jiner Zhu, 2017
luzhin: Not often you see a move like 36.Qg7 that forks THREE undefended pieces.
   Feb-01-18 R Rapport vs D Howell, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: 36.b4!! with the idea of swinging the Bishop from a4 to h5 via d1 is a glorious concept.
   Jan-31-18 C Sandipan vs Ivanchuk, 2018
luzhin: 12.Nxa4!? is an remarkable novelty in a very well known position. Ivanchuk responded perfectly until he played the losing 21...0-0. It was necessary to play 21...Rf8 and to keep the King in the centre to help blockade the White pawns, after which Black, if anyone, has the advantage.
   Jan-29-18 D Howell vs I Saric, 2018
luzhin: No, he wasn't. Just a bit better, that's all. But 42...Qa3 was certainly a dreadful blunder.
   Jan-29-18 Aronian vs Short, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: 8.g4 is an Aronian invention, which he also used to beat Ivanchuk in the blitz world championships 2017. Surely the most testing response would be 8...Qh4.
   Jan-26-18 I Saric vs S D Swapnil, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Black could have turned the tables spectacularly with 35...Be1!! threatening Qxf2+. But if 36.Nxe1 d2 and the pawn promotes!
   Jan-24-18 F Pancevski vs J Ferreira, 2017
luzhin: 30.Bg5 is sneaky: its only point is to provoke 30...e4, Which Black duly does only to find that after 31.Bh6+! Kxh6 32.Qh8+ Kg6 33.dxe4 the square f5 is now under White's control and there's no defence against h4 mate!
   Jan-23-18 G Quillan vs D Dubov, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: 26.Rd2! is the star move. 27.Rd3 looks as good but then 27...h4 would cut across the winning plan of doubling major pieces on the g-file.
