   May-03-18 V S Popov vs K Alekseenko, 2018
luzhin: No defence to 33.Qh6+! Bxh6 34.Rh7 mate.
   May-03-18 V Skatchkov vs P Maletin, 2018
luzhin: Fabulous double piece sac (20...Ne5+ and 21...Bxh3) If 22.gxh3 Qf2+ 23.Kg4 Bxe5 forces mate rapidly. Note also if 22.Bd3 Bg4+ 23.Kg4 Bh4 also forces mate. Bravo!
   Apr-24-18 E Delmar vs Gunsberg, 1889
luzhin: This is ridiculous. 10.Nxe5 wins a piece (if 10...Bxd1 11.Nc6+)
   Apr-04-18 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Caruana had to be precise right to the very end. 41.Qe5 looks like the quickest win--until you see Naiditsch's last ditch swindle 41...Qxf2+ 42.Kxf2 Nd3+ and Black wins!
   Apr-03-18 G Meier vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Note that White's King could not exit stage left: if 36.Kf1 Qf3+ 37.Ke1 Bb4 checkmate!
   Mar-28-18 E Alekseev vs R Mamedov, 2018
luzhin: The position after White's (fatal) 36th move makes a nice puzzle. Of course, after 37.gxh3 Bh2+! leads to mate in three more moves.
   Mar-26-18 Mamedyarov vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Lovely finish by Shakh: after 39...e6 40.f8=Q+ Qxf8 41.Qxg6+ Kh8 42.Qh7 mate
   Mar-26-18 M Matlakov vs T Nabaty, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: 40.Qh8+! Nxh8 41.Nh6++ is a lovely mate. Deflecting the Ng6 gives White's Bb1 control over the h7 flight square.
   Mar-23-18 S Zhigalko vs D Yuffa, 2018
luzhin: Spectacular finish. If 41.Rxd1 cxd1=N+! wins. But not 41...cxd1=Q?? after which it's White who wins with 42.Qxf7+ Kh6 43.Bg4+
   Mar-12-18 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Had Aronian captured the offered Rook with 25.Rxd3 then there might have been the stunning finish 25...Qxe4+ 26.f3 gxf3 27.Re3 f2+ 28.Rxe4+ Bxe4 mate!
