   Oct-19-17 G Mammadova vs N Batsiashvili, 2017
luzhin: Newzild, after 27.Qxe4 Bxe4 28.Rxe4 Re2+ White plays 29.Rd4! (not the hopeless 29.Kf1??) and is fine.
   Oct-18-17 Ljubojevic vs Furman, 1975
luzhin: 26...Nxd4?? 27.Qd1 would be a case of two knights being forked!
   Oct-12-17 E Ronka vs A Kveinys, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: A spectacular 'model' mate!
   Oct-05-17 R Edouard vs S Vega Gutierrez, 2016
luzhin: Spectacular. The line-opening value of 10.d4! is seen in the variation 14...cxd4 15.Nf6+ Kf8 16.Bh6 mate! Still, the position may have been defensible after 18...h6. But after 18...Kc6, definitely not.
   Sep-30-17 Grischuk vs Carlsen, 2016
luzhin: Amazing ending. White was holding against all the tricks until 80.Ng5?? The draw was there with 80.Kc4 e2 81.Nf4 e1=Q 82.Nd3+
   Sep-30-17 Kramnik vs S P Sethuraman, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: The obvious blunder is 57...Rxa4? allowing White to seize the critical 7th rank. After 57...Rd7 (the a pawn is not running away) Black should hold. Lovely finish with 64.Kh3!--taking the g4 flight square from Black's King and therefore making the threat of Rd5+ killing.
   Sep-21-17 Aronian vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: MVL's idea was that after the retreat 15.Nge2, White's Bishop would be impeded. But 15.Bc4!! changes everything.
   Sep-21-17 Aronian vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Hardly fair to criticise an Armegeddon game with both sides down to below a minute, but 54...Raa4 would have been a stone cold draw-- and then MVL would have gone through to the final and an automatic place in the Candidates.
   Sep-15-17 Aronian vs Ivanchuk, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Without a trace of evidence you are calling Aronian a mafioso and Ivanchuk a crook. They are both great sportsmen, and an honour to the game. If you had a shred of their decency (or indeed talent) you would not be disfiguring this thread with your juvenile conspiracy theories.
   Sep-13-17 V Onischuk vs J Olund, 2016
luzhin: 28.Nb7 is a terrific finish. Note: if 28...Nxd5 29.Nxd8 wins
