   Aug-01-15 M Burrows vs A Golding, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: Not bad for an 11 year old! The tricky 35...g5 would have been well answered by 36.Rf1 but White clearly missed the kid's knock-out blow 37...Qxg5!
 
   Jul-29-15 D Howell vs D Gormally, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: Incredible end-game with both GMs very short of time. Gormally's 65..e4! was the only chance to avoid total asphyxiation but if Howell had played 70.Rb7 the win should have been straightforward. Once Black's King gets in, however, it's not easy and after 116.Kg1? Gormally could ...
 
   Jul-26-15 David Howell
 
luzhin: Howell has just won Leiden with the amazing score of 8.5 out of 9 -- sending his live rating soaring well above 2700.
 
   Jul-25-15 Navara vs Adams, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: For some reason Navara just can't get going against Adams -- the Englishman's career score against him is four wins to zero. although they are of similar strength. The 'jinx' opponent is an interesting phenomenon, emphasising the psychological element in top-flight chess.
 
   Jul-22-15 Adams vs Navara, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: 31.Bd5! wins by force but the tactics are not simple and as Adams pointed out, he was running short of time.
 
   Jul-10-15 Wang Chen vs Wei Yi, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: Impressive indeed. 23.Qe3? with the idea of grabbing material while undeveloped was really asking for trouble: which he got.
 
   Jul-03-15 Wei Yi vs L Bruzon Batista, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: 36.Be1!! is a sublime finish. Perhaps the only blemish in a wonderful attack is that the computer suggestion 26.c4!! would have forced mate more quickly.
 
   Jun-29-15 Yifan Hou vs Kramnik, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: After 13.Nc4 Qd3 14.Qc5 Nxe4 15.Qxc7 White is not 'fighting for equality' but remains a pawn up with a better position.
 
   Jun-25-15 Kavalek vs Suttles, 1974 (replies)
 
luzhin: When Black's pawn gets to f3 (in two moves) that also threatens Ra1 checkmate. Is that enough for you, wrap99?
 
   Jun-24-15 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: Yes, 36...Qa1 was a blunder, but 38.Ne1! is the only way to prove it and presumably what Aronian missed. If 38.Nh4 (or indeed 38.Ng1) then 38...Rd1 would have been very good for Black.
