   Oct-19-14 A Indjic vs Lu Shanglei, 2014 (replies)
luzhin: Fantastic play from a very unpromising opening. Indjic had to try 25.Qe3 when after ...Nf1 26.Bxf1 Re4 27.Qxe4 dxe4 28.g3 White is still in the game thanks to the power of his N on e5. After 25.b3?? Black's attack is merciless.
   Oct-17-14 Mohammad Ashraf vs J Westerberg, 2014
luzhin: White's remarkable 30.Bd3!!? sacrificing a whole rook for the attack, succeeds when Black blunders catastrophically on the last move before time control (40...Ne4??). Really brave play against an opponent graded almost 300 points higher.
   Oct-16-14 Lu Shanglei vs V Fedoseev, 2014 (replies)
luzhin: 20.Re5! is a bone-cruncher, threatening not just the Bf5 but also 21.Ra5 trapping Black's Q.
   Oct-15-14 S Marcovici vs J Schollmann, 1989
luzhin: An astounding game, even if White's original piece sac (10.0-0) was completely unsound. After Black missed the ingenious defence 19...Qe6! (with the idea 20.Rxe6 dxe6 21.Qg4 exd5 22.Qg3 dxe4) he was lost. 28.Rc3 wins, but a slight pity White's didn't play 28.f5+! which leads to a ...
   Oct-13-14 L Dominguez vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
luzhin: As Caruana could tell you, the plural of tempo is tempi.
   Oct-12-14 A Tari vs Wei Yi, 2014
luzhin: White spends 8 moves moving his Q far from the action on a4. No wonder he gets mated soon afterwards.
   Oct-09-14 M Senthil vs Parab Ritviz, 2014
luzhin: Quite funny ending: why not 51...Rc5 straight away? Because of 52.Qg8+! forcing stalemate!
   Oct-08-14 G Gaehwiler vs B Bok, 2014
luzhin: Good to see the Evans Gambit in action. White's 23.Bd8!! was clever: the main point is 23...Raxd8 24.Rxe8+ Rxe8 25.Ne7+! Rxe7 26.Qb8+ and mate next move.
   Oct-05-14 D Gormally vs Granda Zuniga, 2014 (replies)
luzhin: Actually, Gormally missed it first time: 15.Nh6!! Qd5 16.Bf3 would have won, whereas after 15.Bf3 Bxf3 16.Qxf3 Ra7, Black is OK. Fortunately for him, Granda blundered last with 15...Nc6, allowing his Queen to be trapped very prettily.
   Oct-04-14 A L'Ami vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014 (replies)
luzhin: 36.Kh4 Qf6+ 37.Kxg4 Qf5+ 38.Kh4 Qh5++ is a pretty mate.
